Provides access to data and information on climate change research, adaptation/mitigation strategies and technologies, and global change-related educational resources on behalf of the various US Federal Agencies that are involved in the US Global Change Research Program (USGCRP).
The Global Change and Terrestrial Ecosystem (GCTE) predicts the effects of changes in climate, atmospheric composition, and land use on terrestrial ecosystems (including agriculture, forestry, soils and biodiversity), and determines how these effects lead to feedbacks to the atmosphere and the physical climate system.
The Climate Analysis Indicators Tool (CAIT) is an information and analysis tool on global climate change developed by the World Resources Institute. CAIT provides a comprehensive and comparable database of greenhouse gas emissions data (including all major sources and sinks) and other climate-relevant indicators. CAIT can be used to analyze a wide range of climate-related data questions and to help support future policy decisions made under the Climate Convention and in other fora.
Many governments have not taken action on climate change because they can’t precisely gauge the harm they will experience from climate change effects, or the benefits gained from climate change policy. This paper discusses possible strategies to create different ways of quantifying these effects that can meet the needs of different national governments around the globe.
EERL's mission is to be the best possible online collection of environmental and energy sustainability resources for community college educators and for their students. The resources are also available for practitioners and the public.
