    Beyond the Basics

    Website: NASA: Climate Change, How Do We Know?  The NASA website is an excellent resource for basic and more detailed information (updated periodically), with many videos and graphics on different aspects of climate change.

    Draft Policy on Care of the Environment  The RC Communities Draft Policy about Care of the Environment, including climate change.

    Mixed media presentation: Diane Shisk’s summary of the science and key issues with videos and graphics.

    Article: Why We Prioritize Addressing Climate Change, Diane Shisk and Tim Jackins.  A summary of the basic science of climate change, with citations if you want more resources. Also includes a summary of what we can do. (updated every few months)

    Draft of Draft Program on Climate Change Proposed Draft Program for the RC Communities on Climate Change, with an overall program and specific action steps. We expect to update this frequently as more information becomes available about what steps can and should be taken now. While drafted with a global perspective, we are encouraging every country to consider writing an addendum to this program to fit their specific circumstances since the situation varies so much country to country.
