Free U.S. EPA report: ‘Climate Change Indicators in the United States, 2016 (Fourth Edition)’

Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has published a new report, ‘Climate Change Indicators in the United States, 2016 (Fourth Edition)’.  Available as a PDF.

‘The Earth’s climate is changing. Temperatures are rising, snow and rainfall patterns are shifting, and more extreme climate events – like heavy rainstorms and record high temperatures – are already happening. Many of these observed changes are linked to the rising levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, caused by human activities. EPA partners with more than 40 data contributors from various government agencies, academic institutions, and other organizations to compile a key set of indicators related to the causes and effects of climate change.’

To order a free copy, send a request to EPA’s Climate Change Indicators Team at climateindicators@epa.gov.

EJSCREEN: Environmental Justice Screening and Mapping Tool | US EPA

220px-Environmental_Protection_Agency_logoIn order to better meet the Agency’s responsibilities related to the protection of public health and the environment, EPA has developed a new environmental justice (EJ) mapping and screening tool called EJSCREEN. It is based on nationally consistent data and an approach that combines environmental and demographic indicators in maps and reports.EJSCREEN users choose a geographic area; the tool then provides demographic and environmental information for that area. All of the EJSCREEN indicators are publicly-available data. EJSCREEN simply provides a way to display this information and includes a method for combining environmental and demographic indicators into EJ indexes.
