The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) announces the availability of "Indicators of Climate Change in California," a report presenting 36 indicators tracking trends in atmospheric gases that influence climate, changes in the state's climate, and the impacts of climate change on California's environment and people. This report is an update to a 2009 report.
The indicators draw upon monitoring and research activities carried out by state and federal agencies, universities, and other research institutions. The indicators can help the state track, assess, and report on the climate change issues it is working to address. They facilitate communication of complex information to a broad audience in a relatively simple, systematic manner. By compiling indicators representing the many aspects of climate change in a single document, this report can serve as a valuable resource for decision-makers, scientists, educators, and other interested individuals.
