The AGU Fall Meeting will feature many sessions & events focused on climate science & public climate literacy.

The focal theme of this year's EMS Annual Meeting is High Impact Weather: Working in Partnership to Reduce Risk. By focusing talks and sessions around this theme, organizers hope to emphasize the partnership dimension of meteorological services.

This year's theme for the annual forum held in Washington, DC is “the value and sustainability of the weather, water and climate enterprise.” Recent research indicates that the annual economic impact of weather events is as much as $485 billion in the United States.

2013 Draft National Climate Assessment

 

Global climate is changing, and this is apparent across the U.S. in a wide range of observations. Rising temperatures, changes in precipitation and extreme events and their causes and impacts on society and the environment are chronicled in the 2013 National Climate Assessment. A team of over 240 experts compiled the report, which is open for public comment through April 12, 2013.
