Curt's recommended links for reliable information on climate change

1. National Climate Assessment (http://nca2014.globalchange.gov/): this latest report is presented on a very user-friendly website, showing past and future climatic changes in the United States and what it means for people and ecosystems in specific regions of the country.

2. Climate Wizard (www.climatewizard.com): an interactive site with global to regional-scale maps, showing past trends and modeled futures for temperature and precipitation.

3. Climate Central (www.climatecentral.org): this is an excellent clearinghouse for accurate, timely information on all things related to climate change, from extreme weather to sea level rise.

4. Intergovernmenal Panel on Climate Change, or "IPCC" (https://www.ipcc.ch/report/ar5/wg1/): a comprehensive state-of-knowledge clearinghouse based on thousands of the latest peer-reviewed scientific studies worldwide. You can download basic summary documents or more detailed documents at this site (Curt was an invited contributor to this report as well).

5. Climate Change in the Champlain Basin (http://www.nature.org/ourinitiatives/regions/northamerica/unitedstates/vermont/howwework/climate-change-in-the-champlain-basin.xml): this site, hosted by The Nature Conservancy, has a link to a download-able report on climate change in the Champlain Basin by Curt Stager and Mary Thill.
