National Climate Assessment

A very nicely done website though it is a shame so little has been done to make real world changes: National Climate Assessment. Not that educating the public isn't important. It certainly is. But far too little is happening in the way of real and drastic changes.

From the page:
U.S. average temperature has increased by 1.3°F to 1.9°F since record keeping began in 1895; most of this increase has occurred since about 1970. The most recent decade was the nation’s warmest on record. Temperatures in the United States are expected to continue to rise. Because human-induced warming is superimposed on a naturally varying climate, the temperature rise has not been, and will not be, uniform or smooth across the country or over time.
