Here's is a small, but powerful, collection of quality meta-resources for AI + Climate Change:

  • Google drive collection of papers on AI + climate change provided by Ankur Mahesh.
  • Climate Change AI - a great monthly newsletter, twitter account, and fortnightly happy hours.
  • Weather and Climate Datasets - a growing collection of datasets relevant for AI + Climate Change research.
