Climate Central is an independent organization of leading scientists and journalists researching and reporting the facts about our changing climate and its impact on the American public.
Climate Central surveys and conducts scientific research on climate change and informs the public of key findings. Their scientists publish and journalists report on climate science, energy, sea level rise, wildfires, drought, and related topics. Climate Central is not an advocacy organization - does not lobby, and does not support any specific legislation, policy or bill. Climate Central is a qualified 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization.
Climate Central scientists publish peer-reviewed research on climate science; energy; impacts such as sea level rise; climate attribution and more. Outside of scientific journals, they investigate and synthesize weather and climate data and science to equip local communities and media with the tools they need to visualize the threat of climate change and the need for practical solutions.
Climate Central's editorial staff operates a news service that is journalistically independent of the organization's research and communications programs. Through its website, its veteran journalists report daily on the facts about our changing climate and its impacts on the American public through news and feature stories, blogs, podcasts, and interactive graphics. Climate Central’s coverage has been featured nationally across digital, print and broadcast platforms.
Climate Central’s Surging Seas website provides sea level rise data and tools. The Surging Seas Risk Finder is an interactive searchable data toolkit shows populations, infrastructure, and assets exposed to coastal flooding aggravated by sea level rise. More information about these resources is available in this Clearinghouse.
