Jim:
A pertinent topic. I’m a bit unsure of what the goal of the app is, though. It seems to be an index of web sites related to global warming. I could see a use for something that organizes and educates. Would this be like an expanded version of RealClimate.com? So, I’m wondering what the goal of the app is and how it might educate folks more than the available info already available on the web?

Best,
Bill

But now the hard part begins, to ensure that individuals, corporations and nations limit carbon emissions and transition to clean energy.  This requires mass education, dialogue and political action.  It requires correcting misinformation.  My hope is that Livecode programmers can play a role is assisting with this challenging global transition.

The Mac download mostly works by my testing, though there are still some bugs.  I’ve not been able to test the Windows version, as yet.  Please let me know of any bugs you find.
