1. In this interview, climate scientist Tufa Dinku discusses his work on combining weather station data with satellite information to generate high-resolution data sets that could be used for making forecasts and feed into climate risk management activities. With funding from Google.org, Dinku and his colleagues at the University of Reading have been working with Ethiopia's National Meteorology Agency since 2008 to produce these hybrid data sets, which now extend the climate record back 30 years.

  3. With the extraordinary and sustained support of our donors and partners, we recently exceeded our $200 million campaign goal almost a year ahead of schedule. Thanks to this milestone, as well as the spectacular success of the overall Columbia Campaign, which recently boosted its goal to $5 billion from $4 billion, the Earth Institute also expanded its own campaign goal by $100 million to $300 million, to be raised by December 2013.  A transformational gift of $10 million from Sue and Bill Gross is already giving the expanded campaign a boost. As well, Jeff Sachs has extended his tenure with the Earth Institute, and will continue to provide the guidance and leadership that will help us meet our new goal. Click above for a special video message from Jeff Sachs about the expanded campaign and a thank you to our donors.
