White House Office Hours: National Climate Assessment

Climate change is affecting us right now, and the carbon pollution that causes it is a threat to our health and the environment. That’s why last June, President Obama issued a broad-based Climate Action Plan, announcing a series of executive actions to cut carbon pollution, prepare the U.S. for the impacts of climate change, and lead international efforts to address global climate change.

Today, as part of that plan, the Administration released the third National Climate Assessment (NCA), the most comprehensive scientific assessment yet of how climate change is impacting every region of the country and key sectors of our economy.
