Climate Confidential has been publishing smart, independent reporting on the crossroads of environment and technology since March 2014. It is funded by readers and dedicated to deepening the popular conversation about people, businesses, and society reckoning with climate change. Readers can expect a mix of original features, columns, and recommended stories on topics ranging from the environmental implications of self-driving cars and the next generation of GMOs to new insights on renewable energy development.

As part of our mission to expand the reach of environmental journalism in a time of historic changes in earth systems, technology, and media, Climate Confidential stories are designed to roam free. While you can read and support our work on the subscription-based Beacon platform, Climate Confidential stories have also been published by The Atlantic, Ensia, Scientific American, Modern Farmer, Pacific Standard, Quartz, and many other partners.

To help make independent environmental journalism available across the web, subscribe to Climate Confidential, make a one-time pledge, or get in touch for information about sponsorship opportunities. You can reach us at team@climateconfidential.com or call Josie Garthwaite at 415-323-0239.
