Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (September 2019)
The IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate highlights the urgency of prioritizing timely, ambitious and coordinated action to address unprecedented and enduring changes in the ocean and cryosphere. This Special Report, approved on September 24, 2019, by the 195 IPCC member governments, provides new evidence for the benefits of limiting global warming to the lowest possible level—in line with the goal that governments set themselves in the 2015 Paris Agreement. Urgently reducing greenhouse gas emissions limits the scale of ocean and cryosphere changes so that the ecosystems and the livelihoods that depend on them can be preserved.
Special Report on Climate Change and Land (August 2019)
According to the IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land, land is already under growing human pressure and climate change is adding to these pressures. At the same time, keeping global warming to well below 2ºC can be achieved only by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from all sectors including land and food. The report analyzes climate change, desertification, land degradation, sustainable land management, food security, and greenhouse gas fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems.
Global Warming of 1.5°C (October 2018)
An IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways, in the context of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, sustainable development, and efforts to eradicate poverty.
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.
Climate.gov is a source of timely and authoritative scientific data and information about climate. Climate.gov's goals are to promote public understanding of climate science and climate-related events, to make NOAA data products and services easy to access and use, to provide climate-related support to the private sector and the Nation's economy, and to serve people making climate-related decisions with tools and resources that help them answer specific questions.
The U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit provides scientific tools, information, and expertise to help people manage their climate-related risks and opportunities, and improve their resilience to extreme events. The site is designed to serve interested citizens, communities, businesses, resource managers, planners, and policy leaders at all levels of government.
Project Drawdown - Founded in 2014, Project Drawdown® is a nonprofit organization that seeks to help the world reach "Drawdown"—the future point in time when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline.
RealClimate - a commentary site on climate science by working climate scientists for the interested public and journalists.
