Year in Review 2008: Best in Climate Change

As we look forward to the new year, we've also reflected on the old, and rediscovered some of the great events, innovations, interviews and debates that 2008 had to offer. For the next week, we will be sharing our picks for the Worldchanging team's best work from the last 12 months. Come back each day for a new collection of posts on topics from climate change to transportation, energy to health and society.

Today's Topic: Climate Change

Whether spurring innovation or policy, movement building or transportation solutions, the call to fight climate change is a unifying force that defines our moment in history. It's easy to understand why: the time for action is now. And the more informed we are about its effects, the better we can come up with the solutions that will change the world. Below is a collection of our best posts on climate change from 2008:
