Related to these efforts, the EU set a goal of limiting temperature.

The well-being of the natural world affects millions of U.S. jobs and the health of our people, and so the Department of State works with partners to advance U.S. interests on issues such as combating wildlife trafficking, fostering resilience, [ ]. Although most drifting buoys start their journeys with a crude send-off—usually heaved into the ocean from the stern of a moving ship—NOAA oceanographer Rick Lumpkin describes today's drifter as "a high-tech message in a bottle." Insignificant on their own, but an army of drifters 1, strong patrols the world's oceans and records key data for climate monitoring and research.

      As one of us (Kelly Sims Gallagher) documents in the recent book “Titans of the Climate,” China has implemented more than policies related to lowering its energy use and greenhouse gas. U.S. Climate Atlas This tool allows users to view interactive maps of average monthly and annual minimum temperature, maximum temperature, and total precipitation. These maps use data between and , commonly referred to as the – Normals. The Normals represent "average" or "typical" conditions one could expect at some location.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines climate change as "any significant change in the measures of climate lasting for an extended period of time." Essentially, climate change includes major changes in temperature, precipitation, or wind patterns, as well as other effects, that occur.

Climate change is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods ranging from decades to millions of years.

It may be a change in average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Environmental Science & Policy promotes communication among government, business and industry, academia, and non-governmental organisations who are instrumental in the solution of environmental problems.
