The U.S. government’s Climate.Data.gov web site is designed to help communities and citizens be more aware and prepared for the impacts of climate change. Currently in the pilot stage, the site provides resources to help companies, communities, and citizens understand and prepare for the impacts of coastal flooding and sea level rise. Over time, more datasets, web services, and tools will be introduced, as well as other themes such as the vulnerability of the food supply and the threats to human health from climate change.
