"There is so much misinformation about climate. We want to provide an easily readable document to help everyone make the most informed decisions," said Tom Karl, director of the government's National Climatic Data Center.
"Having one product endorsed by the nation's top federal science agencies, as well as leading science centers and associations, makes this document an essential resource," said Karl.
It is also being distributed to teachers attending the National Science Teachers Association meeting this week in New Orleans.
The guide was organized by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, parent agency of the climate center, along with the departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Energy, Health and Human Services, Interior, State, Transportation and the Environmental Protection Agency, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, National Science Foundation, Smithsonian Institution, U.S. Agency for International Development and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
