And they're off!

Well it has started. The climate talks in Copenhagen have officially begun. If you'd like to follow the talks online, a number of news sources have set up sites dedicated to the conference which is very promising in itself.

The New York Times


The New York Times have set up their own page on the Copenhagen Climate Talks (UNFCCC). This page features lots of useful information and interactive features like Global Emissions by country, energy consumption, GDP, etc., a timeline on the science and politics of climate change, and a video, Copenhagen 101, which gives a basic overview of what the climate talks are and why they are important.

The Guardian


www.guardian.co.uk/environment/copenhagen is another resource with up-to-date information on what is going on in Copenhagen. Their site offers information on the key players, a glossary of terms that will be used during the conference, video, audio and photo galleries of the conference, and a special feature on Copenhagen media coverage.

Reuters


Reuters is also having extensive coverage of COP15 including a climate panel addressing the key questions for the conference, a live blog feed from journalists at the conference, and a series of fact boxes and related articles for greater understanding.

Other international sites that are extensively covering the conference include Spiegel Online (in English), Le Monde (in French), Al Jazeera (English), and Xinhua Net (English).
