Trust.org Migration and Climate Change.
The subject of 'Migration and Climate Change' was what initially turned us on to Trust.org. Do have a look at these articles, many of them really reporting very under-reported stories.
Trust.org is part of Thomson Reuters Foundation.
Their section “Under-reported Stories”, turns out to have very interesting stories related to climate change.
The Trust Principles:
Thomson Reuters is dedicated to upholding the Trust Principles and to preserving its independence, integrity and freedom from bias in the gathering and dissemination of information and news.
The RSS-feed from Trust.org is not exclusively about climate change but covering the work by Trust.org as a whole.
