We're collaborating on The Climate Desk with Slate, Mother Jones, Grist, Wired, the Center for Investigative Reporting, and PBS' new public affairs show "Need to Know." Here's what they've been up to in the past week:

Over at Grist, David Roberts riffed off Paul Krugman's New York Times Magazine piece, exploring why more economists don't talk about "win-win" climate solutions.

Mother Jones' Kevin Drum also read Krugman's piece, reacting with optimism to the feasibility of cutting emissions.

Also at Mother Jones, Kate Sheppard dissected Obama's decision to give away his two biggest bargaining chips -- nuclear incentives and offshore drilling -- so early in the climate bill game. She also hit the Hill for a Heritage Foundation briefing on the recently debunked "ClimateGate" scandal.  

Mark Schapiro of the Center for Investigative Reporting narrated the chaotic effect the suspension of a carbon offsets validator had on European carbon markets.

And on Slate, Daniel Gross wrapped up The Hive, his attempt to crowdsource ideas from readers on how to make his house more energy efficient. Turns out investing in high-quality construction and considering energy use on a day-to-day basis are most important.
