Each week from late 2009 until July 2010, the Nelson Daily News published a CO2 tracker.  It was designed by Mike McGee, creator of CO2.Earth and Show.Earth, and published in collaboration with Michael Jessen, a climate change columnist at the newspaper.  Most of the published CO2 trackers featured CO2 levels at the time for weekly or monthly periods.  Some put a spotlight on emissions or observed changes in global average temperature.  Every week, the content of the CO2 tracker was different.

The CO2 bulletins were sponsored by a real estate agent in the Kootenay region of British Columbia, Canada.  That is, the City of Nelson and surrounding communities.  They stopped when the century-old newspaper was sold to new owners and then closed in July 2010.   The archive material on this page offers one illustration of how the sales department of a newspaper and local advertisers can collaborate with us at Show.Earth and CO2.Earth to keep newspaper readers informed by the Earth's most important environmental signal as it changes.
