COPIED EPA CLIMATE CHANGE DATA

As you know the EPA is being censored and systematically dismantled. I decided to spend a few days copying the EPA climate change data verbatim before it disappears for good. This includes text, images, graphs, and tables. The data is now sitting on the servers of this site and is uploaded in a very readable and user friendly fashion. You would think there is no reason to do this, since no doubt, all climate scientists from the EPA, NASA, NOAA, are all rushing to make backup copies of the climate change pages. You might also be thinking this project is pretty anal, even for me, but there is a method to my madness. Continue reading....

Climate Change Indicators: Weather and Climate

Rising global average temperature is associated with widespread changes in weather patterns. Scientific studies indicate that extreme weather events such as heat waves and large storms are likely to become more frequent or more intense with human-induced climate change. This chapter focuses on observed changes in temperature, precipitation, storms, floods, and droughts. Continue reading....
Climate Change Indicators: Oceans

Covering about 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, the world’s oceans have a two-way relationship with weather and climate. The oceans influence the weather on local to global scales, while changes in climate can fundamentally alter many properties of the oceans. This chapter examines how some of these important characteristics of the oceans have changed over time. Continue reading....
Climate Change Indicators: Snow and Ice

The Earth’s surface contains many forms of snow and ice, including sea, lake, and river ice; snow cover; glaciers, ice caps, and ice sheets; and frozen ground. Climate change can dramatically alter the Earth’s snow- and ice-covered areas because snow and ice can easily change between solid and liquid states in response to relatively minor changes in temperature. This chapter focuses on trends in snow, glaciers, and the freezing and thawing of oceans and lakes. Continue reading....
Climate Change Indicators: Ecosystems

Ecosystems provide humans with food, clean water, and a variety of other services that can be affected by climate change. This chapter looks at some of the ways that climate change affects ecosystems, including changes in wildfires, streams and lakes, bird migration patterns, fish and shellfish populations, and plant growth. Continue reading....
Climate Change Indicators: Health and Society

Changes in the Earth’s climate can affect public health, agriculture, water supplies, energy production and use, land use and development, and recreation. The nature and extent of these effects, and whether they will be harmful or beneficial, will vary regionally and over time. This chapter looks at some of the ways that climate change is affecting human health and society, including changes in Lyme disease, West Nile virus, ragweed pollen season, heat-related deaths and hospitalizations, heating and cooling needs, and the agricultural growing season across the United States. Continue reading....
Climate Change Impacts: Region

The climate changes facing our planet vary greatly depending on the region. Differences in impact go from slight, to moderate, to great, with some findings actually pointing in the other direction....although not many. This chapter looks at the impacts of climate change on an international level and on a United States regional level. Note: I wrote this introduction....it was not from the EPA site.
Climate Change Impacts: Sector

The climate changes facing our planet vary greatly depending on the sector in question. Differences in impact go from slight, to moderate, to great, with some findings actually pointing in the other direction....although not many. This chapter looks at the impacts of climate change on various sectors in the United States. Note: I wrote this introduction....it was not from the EPA site.
