The American Geophysical Union, the leading climate science organization, is due to launch a new web service offering journalists accurate scientific information about climate change. The AGU is also working on an iPhone app.

Those involved deny a political agenda.  The web service will address scientific questions only.

“Our goal is not to become partisan. But if we are going to respond to denialists’ claims which are unfounded in science then perhaps we are going to be viewed as going toe-to-toe with critics,” said John Abraham of St. Thomas University of Minnesota.

It is intended to run for 3 months using appx. 700 volunteers.

Progress for climate change took a hard hit during these elections and the science and politics are bound to intertwine.

A majority of the Republican newcomers deny the existence of man-made climate change or oppose regulation of greenhouse gas emissions, according to an analysis by Think Progress.
