Weather Underground is proud to announce the launch of a new Climate Videos section! We have partnered with GREEN.TV and Vestas, the World's leading wind turbine manufacturer, to bring you the very latest in the world of climate and extreme weather. According to GREEN.TV, "the Extreme Weather (series) will feature the latest reports and analysis on extreme weather events around the world. If there's a drought, hurricane, freak snowstorm or severe flooding, Extreme Weather will cover the story and the science behind the headlines - with expert analysis from leading meteorologists, info-graphics and data from Vestas' own in-house weather centre."
Initially, the featured video series about extreme weather will be updated every few days, but it is our intention to gradually expand the video offerings in the section to encompass a wide array of educational and informative videos about the Earth's changing climate. Our hope is that you walk away from each video with a greater understanding not only of current weather events throughout the globe, but also with more respect toward the one place we all call home.
We invite you to take a few minutes to watch the first episode about the Thailand flood, the Northeast snowstorm, and a recent report hinting at more extreme weather to come. As always, we appreciate constructive feedback regarding products that would be interesting to include in this Climate Videos section. Community interaction is what makes Weather Underground a unigue weather website, so please feel free to tell us what you think by commenting on this blog.
Please enjoy the newest addition to Weather Underground, the Climate Videos section!
