EPA recently released a major update, expansion, and enhancement of its Climate Change Indicators in the United States website. This one-hour webinar will explore the new website, which is a comprehensive and accessible resource that includes 54 indicators (140 figures). The indicators show clear evidence of changes to our climate reflected in rising temperatures and sea level, increases in drought conditions, heat waves, and wildfires, among many other climate-related changes. The presentation will provide key findings, highlight several indicators, and describe ways to explore, share and use the information including interactive data tools and story maps.
