To cultivate timely and accurate weather information that supports community resilience and safety during the climate emergency.
We help illuminate possible paths toward a liberated, habitable and joyful future for people and the environment alike.
By now it’s clear that we’re in for some shit as the climate emergency escalates. People of color have dealt with the climate emergency for centuries — an experience that is becoming even more common, and extreme, as temperatures rise and the machinery of injustice seeks business as usual with increasing desperation. Climate change is inextricably linked to inequality, racism, and extractive capitalist expansion — none of which are compatible with a habitable planet.
This is a true emergency. Every one of us has the ability to help create change on the scale and rate this emergency requires.
One of the main findings is that it is possible for everyone, everywhere in the world, to have decent living conditions and for the world to cut greenhouse gas emissions fast enough to prevent the worst of climate change — at the same time. These conclusions are nothing less than revolutionary. In fact, that’s exactly what the IPCC says:
Currently is a new phase of the effort to rapidly scale up climate action. Currently is a weather service for the climate emergency.
Currently will publish stories from our team of journalists and contributors around the world about extreme weather and its climate context. Our stories highlight local work and experiences during the climate emergency, profile individuals doing essential work to fight climate change, and show us all the ways extreme weather ties into our everyday lives.
Everything about Currently is focused on climate, and that includes how we make money. We only accept advertising from climate-forward organizations and businesses. All sponsored content is clearly marked as sponsored. All our membership revenue goes back into expanding our services for the people, places, and organizations at the front lines of the climate emergency.
Currently reduces emissions by partnering with renewable energy companies to help plan locations for new wind and solar farms — especially across the parts of the world where English is not the first language. For most of the world, access to high-resolution, timely weather forecasts is still hard to come by. Currently’s work not only helps create safety during extreme weather, but we help to reverse climate change, too by investing in the people whose revolutionary ideas have been systematically ignored for too long.
At Currently, we exist not only to shine light on those communities and their struggles, but also to build a line of defense for future storms. We exist not only to amplify the voices of people on the front lines of climate change, but to act as an early warning system for climate disaster and an advocate for fundamental systemic change in all aspects of society.
Our vision is of a world where “a liberated, habitable and joyful future for people and the environment alike” is achievable for every single person on the planet, regardless of who they are, where they live, or what language they speak.
On World Meteorological Day 2022, the United Nations launched an effort to expand early warning systems, like Currently, to every country in the world. We’re proud to do our part to advance that effort, and here’s how we’ll try to do that:
We provide timely, personalized weather and climate change news to folks who need it.
