As a matter of public record: This document serves as official notice from the owners of this website that on 25 June 2006 the concept of a global warming / climate change topic publication and associated website originates here. No current publication exists, which dedicates its editorial content exclusively to topics of, and related to, global warming and or climate change.
As of this date, only general media publications and journals have dedicated issues or stories to global warming and climate change in conjunction with its regular production of general news. As of this date, investment-type Internet domain brokers have purchased climate and global warming related URLs, but offer them for sale without developing editorial content.
Whether a publication (either trade or consumer) and associated website (or any electronic communication) is called; Our Changing Climate, Climate Change Today, Global Warming Today, or "Monthly," in the case of print publication, or any similar title dedicated to producing editorial content on issues of global warming and climate change is now legally and exclusively conceptualized in this record. The owners purchased and own all rights to website URLs:
Key to the success --of a global warming or climate change publication and associated websites-- is the presentation of objective news and features on scientific facts, professional debate, and the most current regional climate data as it pertains to global warming and climate change. Editorial staff / journalists will present actual data and follow trends daily (online) and monthly (in print) as certain regions of the world (called hot spots) are affected by climate change at that moment.
Journalists --only those professional and advanced degreed journalists who possess full understanding of meteorological science-- would staff this publication to transform scientific community messages and debate into objective, common, understandable language for all audiences and follow-up on each topic as new data is revealed.
Staff would include one publisher (+$124,000 annual / Euro 99,000,) one managing editor ($99,000 annual / Euro 79,000,) two full-time staff journalists ($66,000 annual / Euro 53,000,) one advertising sales manager (+$40,000 annual plus commission / Euro 32,000,) one production manager ($71,000 annual / Euro 57,000,) and one assistant production employee ($51,000 annual / Euro 41,000,) one receptionist / office secretary. Each employee would receive one annual bonus, and four-weeks paid vacation. Editorial staff would use the services of freelance photographers, and freelance journalists as needed.
The organization would remain private with profit goals of between 8 and 12 percent per year.
Climate change affects water resources for short and long-term crop planning, ice road conditions (for miners,) fire prevention planning for forestry services, transportation, recreational planning for ski resorts, public utility resources for power grid planning, and civil engineers of master planned communities (especially in drought-prone and sea-level regions.)
Advertising & Subscriptions:
'Our Changing Climate,' 'Climate Change Today,' 'Global Warming Today,' or Monthly, in the case of print publication, or any similar title dedicated to producing editorial content on issues of global warming and climate change would offer 12 issues annually, with regular updates electronically. Print advertisers are provided banner ad space on the website as part of the print contract.
Potential advertisers: Engineering firms, chemical research and production firms, industrial energy consultants, and construction firms and consultants dedicated to those industries affected most by climate change (farming, mining, coastal municipalities, construction) and academic programs dedicated to meteorology science.
Target subscription rates: $199 per year (or $23 per individual issue.) Regular subscribers have unlimited access to the website, but separate fees ($20 per month) apply to website subscribers only.
This publication and associated electronic presence will produce funding and advertising revenue from launch. The company is viewed as a global news producer as topic areas affect all geographical regions. Corporate offices would be based in Europe due to the proximity of advanced scientific climate knowledge-based centers in Europe.
Climate change is part of the global cycle of life. To what extend human interaction has completely changed or will alter said global cycles in the future is largely debated within the scientific community. This topic, via publication and associated website, would provide a historical account of data related to these changes from a given point forward. As global warming and cooling cycles surpass human life expectancy the future of this publication has an unlimited lifespan.
