Through more extreme weather events, rising sea levels, and rising global temperatures, climate change is impacting the health of our communities in many ways . Throughout Public Lab you’ll find tools and resources to research and monitor the effects of climate change. From water quality to air quality to disaster response, the environmental issues that we address on Public Lab can all connect back to climate change. This page is a place for the community to collect and organize resources on community science and climate change.
