From 2014 to 2023, PRI curated the New York Climate Change Science Clearinghouse (nyclimatescience.org). The Clearinghouse shut down in August 2023. It provided resources to help communities, residents, and governments become more resilient to climate change.
The Clearinghouse provided access to maps, data, decision tools, documents, plans, videos, and more, to support scientifically sound decision making in New York State. Teachers can also use these resources in their classrooms.
Teaching with the NY Climate Change Science Clearinghouse
The New York Climate Change Science Clearinghouse served as a resource for classroom teachers, particularly as a source of climate change data sets, data products, and maps. Using content from the Clearinghouse, students can analyze maps and graphs of current, locally-relevant climate data and use data explorations to create and pursue their own questions about climate change and its impacts.
