Really Simple Syndication (RSS)
What is RSS?
RSS is a widely-used standard for publishing frequently-updated web content, so that people interested in a site's content can receive the updated content (such as news, blogs, videos, etc) without having to visit the site itself.
What feeds are available from LowCarbonEconomy.com?
LowCarbonEconomy.com currently provides RSS feeds for most of the types of content available on the site:
How can I use these RSS feeds?
RSS feeds are designed to be 'read' by computer programs. The most common way to use RSS feeds is to use an RSS reader or aggregator. Programs like Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Thunderbird, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari all have built-in RSS readers. Alternatively, you can install specialist RSS reading software, or use a web-based service such as Google Reader or Netvibes. Wikipedia's RSS article has full details, including a comprehensive list of RSS reader options.
It's also possible to consume RSS using web services or computer scripts. We welcome collaboration and provide these feeds in the spirit of openness, but we do provide them under specific Terms and Conditions. We recommend that you read these if you intend to consume these feeds for any purpose that is not strictly personal or private.
