152 Photos and Counting For Our Photo Contest

Just a quick note to say that our Greenest Photo Ever contest on Flickr has taken off and exceeded our expectations. We're less than a week in, and we've already got over 150 photos submitted.

If you haven't submitted yet, feel free to head on over to the group, and add a few photos. Also, don't forget to 'favourite' some of the ones you like best–that's how we're choosing the finalists.

Check Out Our New Widget

We recently developed another way for you to get news from DeSmogBlog. It's a widget (or, if you're on Windows Vista, a gadget).

What's a widget? In a nutshell, it's a little program that sits on your Apple OS X or Windows Vista desktop and does something neat. There are widgets and gadgets for nearly everything, and now there's one for DeSmogBlog lovers.

Our widget displays current DeSmogBlog news. Plus, it's got a counter that shows the planet's estimated accumulated carbon footprint since January 1, 2007.

Visit our widget page for more information and to download our widget/gadget.

A Big Thank You To Our Operation DeSmog USA Donors

Just a quick post to say a heartfelt thanks to everybody who has donated to our fundraising campaign. We've already raised $1425! We're well on our well to achieving our goal of raising $10,000 to help us expand our work in the USA. Keep those donations rolling in!

Help Us Launch Operation DeSmog USA

The more sharp-eyed among you may have noticed a new item in DeSmogBlog's sidebar. It's our big donation button!

There is no doubt that we have caught the attention of US think tanks and well-known climate change deniers like Steve “the Junkman” Milloy, the Heartland Institute, the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Senator James Inhofe.

But now we're ready to take our US operations to the next level. Our goals are to increase our research capabilities, hire a Washington insider and enhance our US political and media monitoring.

Join Our Facebook Group

As a zillion mainstream media articles will tell you, everybody's agog about Facebook. If you're not on it, you've probably been barraged with invitations from friends and colleagues who have made it the social network of the moment. 

As we like to do around here, we're hopping on the bandwagon. I've created a Facebook group called Friends of DeSmogBlog. You won't be able to see that link unless you're already drinking the Facebook Koolaid. Please join our group if you're so inclined–we're at 61 members and counting!
