PAULINE’S PICK: Boston.com Uses Slideshow to Show Possible Effects of Global Warming

By: Pauline Millard

Making content web-ready doesn’t have to be complicated. I’ve mentioned the Soundslides program before, which is the easy way to create slideshows with or without audio.

Being “green” is a big trend nowadays, and media outlets are constantly trying to show the effects of global warning. Boston.com took the concept of rising temperatures and showed, through a series of five stock photos, what winter in Boston would look like if the average temperature went up a certain amount of degrees. The project is quick to click through and shows very clearly how this northern city would change with just a few degrees.

The slideshow is also linked to a larger archive of Boston.com stories about the environment.

How is your paper covering all things green? I’d love to know about it.
