Articles/Reports from Agencies and Non-Governmental Organizations Addressing Aspects of Climate Change

Kansas City, Missouri, Climate Protection and Resilience PlanActiona, Kansas City, Missouri

The plan is an equity-centeted roadmap to help Kansas City achieve it’s greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals of climate neutrality for city operations by 2030 and citywide by 2040 and adapt to flooding, extreme heat, and other climate change impacts Kansas City is already facing.

City of San Diego Climate Action Plan, City of San Diego

To meet the magnitude of the crisis, San Diego is setting an ambitious goal to achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2035. San Diego can and must lead with bold and inclusive steps. The plan is the City’s policy commitment to set clear goals to reduce GHG emissions and details the strategies and actions that San Diego will collectively take to make San Diego a more sustainable, healthy and thriving city. The plan outlines federal, regional and local actions to avoid GHG emissions and allows San Diego to hold itself accountable as it implements the plan.

Closing the Gap: Priorities for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Building RD&D Portfolio, Hoyu Chong, Information Technology & Innovation Foundation

The building sector is not on track to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. Federal research development and demonstration investments have been disproportionately low, while national strategies that address the key hurdles of decarbonizing the building sector have been lacking.


Obtaining articles without journal subscriptions

We know it’s frustrating that many articles we cite here are not free to read. One-off paid access fees are generally astronomically priced, suitable for such as On a Heuristic Point of View Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light”  but not as a gamble on unknowns. With a median world income of US$ 9,373, for most of us US$ 42 is significant money to wager on an article’s relevance and importance. 

  • Unpaywall offers a browser extension for Chrome and Firefox that automatically indicates when an article is freely accessible and provides immediate access without further trouble. Unpaywall is also unscammy, works well, is itself offered free to use. The organizers (a legitimate nonprofit) report about a 50% success rate
  • The weekly New Research catch is checked against the Unpaywall database with accessible items being flagged. Especially for just-published articles this mechansim may fail. If you’re interested in an article title and it is not listed here as “open access,” be sure to check the link anyway. 

How is New Research assembled?

Most articles appearing here are found via  RSS feeds from journal publishers, filtered by search terms to produce raw output for assessment of relevance. 

Relevant articles are then queried against the Unpaywall database, to identify open access articles and expose useful metadata for articles appearing in the database. 

The objective of New Research isn’t to cast a tinge on scientific results, to color readers’ impressions. Hence candidate articles are assessed via two metrics only:

  • Was an article deemed of sufficient merit by a team of journal editors and peer reviewers? The fact of journal RSS output assigns a “yes” to this automatically. 
  • Is an article relevant to the topic of anthropogenic climate change? Due to filter overlap with other publication topics of inquiry, of a typical week’s 550 or so input articles about 1/4 of RSS output makes the cut.

A few journals offer public access to “preprint” versions of articles for which the review process is not yet complete. For some key journals this all the mention we’ll see in RSS feeds, so we include such items in New Research. These are flagged as “preprint.”

The section “Informed opinion, nudges & major initiatives” includes some items that are not scientific research per se but fall instead into the category of “perspectives,” observations of implications of research findings, areas needing attention, etc.
