How to follow our UN Climate Change Conference coverage.

Hello, hello, UpTakers!  The team is settled in Copenhagen, and I wanted to pass along the many ways you can follow our coverage of the UN Climate Change Conference, our first international news coverage. The conference lasts until December 18th, and we’ll be there, cameras in hand, for the entire thing. 
 
Livestreams
 
From about 2 AM CST – 12:30 PM CST, we’re live-streaming the sessions inside the Bella Center on our front page.  We’ll alert you on our Twitter account when a session is live, or you can check the badges below our video on the front page. 
 
Many sessions run simultaneously, so you can switch channels on our video player by clicking Copenhagen 1, 2, 3 or 4 on the right-hand side of the player.  After the sessions are over for the day, we’ll replay the entire day on the front page.

Fancy, produced video

We’re also publishing edited pieces throughout the day.  Examples: we talk with Naomi Klein of The Nation about the concept of hope, and what it means for this conference. Watch a musical demonstration outside of The Bella Center before Day One.  And should Africa be represented by Ethiopian dictator Meles Zenawi at the conference?

Read our tweets

Our team is twittering furiously throughout the day.  Check our live blog for all the tweets in one place, or add them individually: Chuck, Jason, Mike, Jacob, Rick.  (Oh, say hi to Jacob Wheeler and Rick Fuentes, journalists from Chicago and the Twin Cities respectively, who are helping us out in Copenhagen.)

A gaggle of videos and links (kind of like a pride of lions)

We’re also collecting video on the conference from all over the web here, and you can read daily link round-ups from our interns, Alicia and Kelly, here.  (Say hi to Alicia and Kelly, everyone.)

Embed us!  Steal our RSS!

If you’d like to embed our livestream player, go to our front page and click on the Embed button at the bottom of the video player.  That’ll bring up the code.  Click on the channels on the right to bring up that particular channel’s embed code.

If you’d like an RSS feed of our videos, take our Blip RSS here.

We left our heart in Minnesota

We don’t miss the snow, but we’re not ignoring you, Minnesota.  Check our Minnesota Twitter account for our local live-streaming schedule, and for local videos.  Our citizen journalist supreme, Craig Stellmacher, shot this great video of Sarah Palin and her fans at the Mall America.

As always, if you have questions, or want to say hi to the team, you can write us at info@theuptake.org.

Tak!  (And thanks for watching.)
