News about Climate Change
Government agencies and non-governmental organizations studying and working to educate the public about climate change
National Aeronautics and Space Administration
- Climate Change: NASA's Eyes on the Earth - Current news and data streams about global warming and climate change from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
- The Earth Observatory's mission is to share with the public the images, stories, and discoveries about climate and the environment that emerge from NASA research, including its satellite missions, in-the-field research, and climate models.
- Climate 365 is a yearlong effort in 2013 to highlight NASA's ongoing monitoring of Earth's climate.
- Research at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) emphasizes a broad study of global change, which is an interdisciplinary initiative addressing natural and man-made changes in our environment that occur on various time scales—from one-time forcings such as volcanic explosions, to seasonal and annual effects such as El Niño, and on up to the millennia of ice ages—and that affect the habitability of our planet.
