Climate.gov Launched

The Obama administration has launched a climate website,  www.climate.gov, that provides data on such factors as atmospheric carbon dioxide levels and arctic sea ice, USA Today reported Monday.

Like the National Weather Service, the website will be part of a national Climate Service, a department of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). A primary goal of the Climate Service is to assist businesses with long term planning.

“The better climate information that alternative energy companies have,” said U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke, “the more profitable they can be, the more jobs they can create and the more they can actually meet the energy demands of our country and indeed the world.”

The website offers an interactive look at global climate science and feature stories through its Climate Watch Magazine.
