"...various threads of work are woven together in The All We Can Save Project, an organization to support transformational climate leadership, especially among Black, Indigenous, and other women of color, and to help nurture the feminist climate renaissance that is unfurling."
"Our mission is to help the world reach “drawdown”—the point in the future when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline, thereby stopping catastrophic climate change—as quickly, safely, and equitably as possible."
"Climate change. We know. It can feel too overwhelming. But what if there was a show about climate change that left you feeling... energized? One so filled with possibility that you actually wanted to listen? Join us, journalist Alex Blumberg and a crew of climate nerds, as we bring you smart, inspiring stories about the mess we're in and how we can get ourselves out of it."
"The Working Group I contribution to the Sixth Assessment Report is the most up-to-date physical understanding of the climate system and climate change, bringing together the latest advances in climate science, and combining multiple lines of evidence from paleoclimate, observations, process understanding, and global and regional climate simulations."
"A novel tool for flexible spatial and temporal analyses of much of the observed and projected climate change information underpinning the Working Group I contribution to the Sixth Assessment Report, including regional synthesis for Climatic Impact-Drivers (CIDs)."
"Cal-Adapt provides a way to explore peer-reviewed data that portrays how climate change might affect California at the state and local level. We make this data available through downloads, visualizations, and the Cal-Adapt API for your research, outreach, and adaptation planning needs."
"Addressing the climate crisis begins by talking about it. In our weekly podcast and public radio program, Climate One from The Commonwealth Club engages advocates, influencers and policymakers in empowering conversations that connect all aspects of the climate emergency - the individual and the systemic, the scary and the exciting – to deepen your understanding of the most critical issue of our time."
"From exposure to extreme weather and heat waves to worsening air pollution and the spread of insect-borne disease — climate change is a health emergency."
"The UNFCCC secretariat (UN Climate Change) is the United Nations entity tasked with supporting the global response to the threat of climate change. UNFCCC stands for United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The Convention has near universal membership (197 Parties) and is the parent treaty of the 2015 Paris Agreement. The main aim of the Paris Agreement is to keep the global average temperature rise this century as close as possible to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The UNFCCC is also the parent treaty of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. The ultimate objective of all three agreements under the UNFCCC is to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that will prevent dangerous human interference with the climate system, in a time frame which allows ecosystems to adapt naturally and enables sustainable development."
"The Carbon Cycle Greenhouse Gases (CCGG) research area operates the Global Greenhouse Gas Reference Network, measuring the atmospheric distribution and trends of the three main long-term drivers of climate change, carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O), as well as carbon monoxide (CO) which is an important indicator of air pollution."
"CDC’s Climate and Health Program supports state, tribal, local, and territorial public health agencies as they prepare for the health impacts of a changing climate. CDC is proud of the collaborative work states, cities, territories, and tribes are doing to develop and implement adaptation plans to protect at-risk populations and locations.
Started in 2010, CDC’s Climate-Ready States and Cities Initiative is now helping 11 grant recipients around the nation use the five-step Building Resilience Against Climate Effects (BRACE) framework to identify likely climate impacts in their communities, potential health effects associated with these impacts, and their most at-risk populations and locations. The BRACE framework then helps these jurisdictions develop and implement health adaptation plans and address gaps in critical public health functions and services. Additionally, the program has created a suite of communication products and guidance to help our grant recipients better communicate with local communities and partners about these climate and health impacts."
A game of hope & action for the climate.
"It’s a race against time to fight climate change. You and your friends must work together to reduce global emissions before it’s too late! As you strategically deploy various climate solutions, you will be tested on your knowledge and your ability to prioritize. You will need to think critically about each solution and discuss with your teammates in order to avoid catastrophe. We have spent thousands of hours during the game’s development to build the game’s foundation on cutting-edge climate research. For example, the core solutions in the game are inspired by the ground-breaking work of Paul Hawken, the co-founder of Project Drawdown and founder of Project Regeneration. Other research, such as the feedback loop cards and the starting points for global temperature, is based on NASA, the IPCC, UNFCCC, NOAA, Yale, Stanford, the World Resources Institute, the World Economic Forum, the AMPERE Database, and more."
"Understanding and addressing climate change is critical to EPA's mission of protecting human health and the environment. This website serves as a resource to help individuals, businesses, communities, and state, local, and tribal governments access timely and accurate information about this important issue."
"The earth’s climate is changing, and the evidence is all around us. Temperatures are rising, more extreme weather events are occurring, and other changes are taking place in the atmosphere, within the oceans, and on the land. Not only is climate change happening now, it is already affecting people’s health and well-being as well as wildlife and the natural environment. Understanding and addressing climate change is critical to EPA's mission of protecting human health and the environment. This website serves as a resource to help individuals, businesses, communities, and state, local, and tribal governments access timely and accurate information about this important issue."
"Our mission is to catalyze a global solution to the climate crisis by making urgent action a necessity across every sector of society. We believe real change comes from the ground up. We know that a small-but-committed critical mass of activists can not only transform society, but change the world. That’s why we recruit, train, and mobilize people to become powerful activists, providing the skills, campaigns, and resources to push for aggressive climate action and high-level policies that accelerate a just transition to clean energy.
Our signature activist program, the Climate Reality Leadership Corps, has trained over 42,000 change makers worldwide since 2006. The result is a global network of activists leading the fight for climate solutions through our 10 branch offices – Australia, Brazil, Canada, Europe, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, the Philippines, and South Africa and a partnership in China – and 140 chapters across the US.
Alongside these efforts, our dynamic communications initiatives connect climate and behavioral science with the emotional power of compelling stories, raising awareness and inspiring action in online audiences everywhere."
"Poverty, disease, hunger, climate change, war, existential risks, and inequality: The world faces many great and terrifying problems. It is these large problems that our work at Our World in Data focuses on. Thanks to the work of thousands of researchers around the world who dedicate their lives to it, we often have a good understanding of how it is possible to make progress against the large problems we are facing. The world has the resources to do much better and reduce the suffering in the world.
We believe that a key reason why we fail to achieve the progress we are capable of is that we do not make enough use of this existing research and data: the important knowledge is often stored in inaccessible databases, locked away behind paywalls and buried under jargon in academic papers. The goal of our work is to make the knowledge on the big problems accessible and understandable. As we say on our homepage, Our World in Data is about Research and data to make progress against the world’s largest problems."
"Climate change poses a threat not only to the Klamath ecosystem, but to Karuk culture which is intimately intertwined with the presence, use and management of cultural use species (Karuk Tribe 2010, Lake et al 2010, Norgaard 2005). In the context of climate change, Karuk tribal knowledge and management principles can be utilized to protect public as well as tribal trust resources (Karuk Tribe 2012). The Karuk Tribe is actively involved in climate planning. This website contains information about the Tribe’s current Climate Vulnerability Assessment and two reports on Traditional Ecological Knowledge and Knowledge Sovereignty."
Hot Take started as a podcast, from climate essayist Mary Annaïse Heglar and climate reporter Amy Westervelt. In 2020, we added this newsletter as a place to curate the great climate content we were seeing. It still delivers that curated digest every Sunday, and Mary and Amy (and occasionally guest contributors!) also write everything from media criticism to personal essays to explainer pieces in the newsletter."
