Climate Change, the News, Tools, Challenges — January Research Spotlight
Climate change, policy, health & environmental effects, science, a personal emissions calculator, and you...see how the EPA's Climate Change Site offers information on these issues. The news releases, features, summations, and images help us to understand how society is affected, at the individual, community, business, government, and international levels.
- quick definitions (global warming, or climate change?)
- categories to explore more about recent news such as the polar ice shelf melt
- Example: "Polar Region" link for Arctic Climate Impact Assessment report (sea level rise, polar bears, remote sensing evidence, NASA & NOAA data and indicators, analysis, and references)
- NOVA PBS features, peer-reviewed reports and images that inform, raise your awareness, and help support decision making.
The Personal Emissions Calculator, along with the category "What You Can Do" (home, office, school, etc.) is a quick way to see how your car, home, recycling, or remodeling efforts stack up to national data and carbon emissions. By saying yes to things like 2 degrees cooler/warmer, new windows, new appliances, see how you can have a startling positive effect on your planet!
