On Tuesday, June 25, in a speech at Georgetown University, President Obama announced his comprehensive plan for steady, responsible action to cut carbon pollution, prepare the Nation for the impacts of climate change, and lead international efforts to address climate change as a global challenge.
To address future risk of coastal flooding, federal agencies have jointly developed a sea level rise planning tool - which includes interactive sea level rise (SLR) maps and a SLR calculator. The tool provides information on how parts of New York and New Jersey impacted by Sandy may be impacted by coastal flooding in the future.
The National Climate Assessment and Development Advisory Committee (NCADAC) was established by the Secretary of Commerce under the authority of the Global Change Research Act of 1990 to synthesize and summarize the science and information pertaining to current and future impacts of climate.
