We're Progressive Bloggers

Just a quick note to say that we're proud to have joined the ranks of Progressive Bloggers. From the PB wiki:

Progressive Bloggers is a group of Canadian bloggers who firmly believe that this great country needs to move forward, not backwards. Be they Liberal or liberal, New Democrats or democrats, Green voters or voters who want a green country, or even Red Tories searching for a home, these bloggers believe that Canadian politics should move in a progressive direction.

If you're so inclined, you can check out the massive PB blogroll on this page. We are indeed pleased to be included, from sea to shining sea.

We've Caught the Twitter Virus

One of my jobs here at DeSmogBlog is to keep an eye on emerging Web technologies and models and see if there are applications for this site. One of the newest such applications is Twitter. There's always Wikipedia, but David Lee King has a decent explanation.

Lots of people refer to it as a form of micro-blogging, but I like to call it one's 'status trickle'. Here are a couple of blogs posts specific to how non-profits might use Twitter.

We've started our own Twitter account.

How Can We Be Better?

We're pausing on this sunny (at least in Vancouver) Monday to ask you an important question: how could we improve DeSmogBlog? Whether you're a veteran reader with tons of comments, or a new visitor, take a moment and help us make the site better.

Green Sheets: We're Not All Doom and Gloom

You know, there's more to global warming than debunking sceptics. The goal of this site is to “clear the PR pollution”, but there's always time and space to talk about solutions, too.

That's why we added a new section to the site: Ross Gelbspan's Green Sheets:

In publicizing climate solutions at every level, The Green Sheet is inspired by the belief that our greatest natural renewable resource is human ingenuity. We created the problem, and we are also the ones who can fix it.

Also check out Ross's vision for a path to climate peace . We hope that it's a way forward.

Because We Didn't Get an Oscar: Play Stars and Stinkers

Global warming is serious business, and this site has some pretty no-nonsense goals. There is, however, something to be said for having a little fun (and poking a little fun) every once in a while.

We created our flash game, Stars and Stinkers, to lighten things up, and to help raise awareness about global warming among a larger, celebrity loving and hating audience.
