Climate Change Indicators in the United States

Description:

 The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Climate Change Indicators in the United States report will help readers interpret a set of important indicators to better understand climate change. The report presents 24 indicators, each describing trends related to the causes and effects of climate change. It focuses primarily on the United States, but in some cases global trends are presented to provide context or a basis for comparison. EPA will use these indicators to examine long-term data sets to: 

• Track the effects/impacts of climate change in the United States;
• Assist decision–makers on how to best use policymaking and program resources to respond to climate change; and
• Assist EPA and its constituents in evaluating the success of their climate change efforts.

This is a good tool for background information on the environmental impacts of climate change and changing patterns for these indicators.

It is primarily as the title sounds, an overview of CC and not a tool for CC how-tos for LHDs, but can be used as background info.
