Today, NOAA unveiled a new and improved version of Climate.gov, a one-stop web resource for information about our changing climate from NOAA and agencies across the federal government.
NOAA's redesigned Climate.gov website offers user-friendly maps, video, imagery, news, and other features available to anyone seeking timely and trusted information, such as community planners, business and policy leaders, scientists, resource managers, broadcast meteorologists, journalists, and educators.
Since the website's launch in 2010, NOAA has engaged in dialogue with climate data users in both the public and private sectors about their needs. Based on feedback, Climate.gov now features a refined interface, enhanced its functionality, and added new content and tools, such as the Global Climate Dashboard and the Integrated Map Application, that make it easier for anyone to find, use, and visualize climate data.
Americans' health, security, and economic well-being are tied to climate and weather. Every day, communities and businesses grapple with environmental challenges due to unusual, extreme, or changing climate and weather conditions. Climate.gov offers actionable information people need to make well-informed decisions.
NOAA Climate.gov's mission is to provide timely data and information to help build a climate-smart nation. To view the website, visit www.climate.gov, or follow on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
