EPA Website Restores Climate Change Information

Newly appointed EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan announced the publication of climate change information on the Agency’s newly restored climate change webpage for the first time in 4 years.

“Climate facts are back on EPA’s website where they should be,” Regan said. “Considering the urgency of this crisis, it’s critical that Americans have access to information and resources so that we can all play a role in protecting our environment, our health, and vulnerable communities. Trustworthy, science-based information is at the foundation of strong, achievable solutions.”

The new site provides access to the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, data on the impacts of climate change, scientific reports, and information and links to existing climate change programs within the EPA and other parts of the federal government. As stated on the webpage, one of the EPA’s priorities is “restoring the role of science in addressing the climate crisis.” To highlight this, the webpage helps the public view and understand available scientific data. For example:

An interactive Climate Indicators StoryMap provides access to the indicator data that show how the climate is changing. It also allows visitors to see the implications of climate change across the United States, along with providing information and resources for learning more about adapting to rapid climate changes.

A link to EJSCREEN, the EPA’s mapping and screening tool, that “includes climate parameters on sea-level rise and flooding,” which allows visitors to understand the importance of environmental justice in tackling climate change issues.
