A new website from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., is devoted to educating the public about Earth's changing climate. The Global Climate Change website provides easy-to-understand information about the causes and effects of climate change and how NASA studies it.

Highlights of the new website include:

- A continuously updated snapshot of our planet's health, built from NASA data on such climate indicators as the condition of Earth's ice sheets, global average temperatures, sea level change and concentrations of key greenhouse gases.

- Interactive visualizations of current climate data, including a Sea Level Viewer that provides views from space of ocean surface topography data and related phenomena such as El Nin?o; and

- A Global Climate Change Time Machine that takes users back in time to see how Earth's climate has changed in the past, and how it is projected to change in the future.

- A downloadable desktop widget that allows users to track key indicators of climate change as measured by NASA satellites.

- Easy-to-understand background articles on the evidence, causes and effects, and uncertainties of global climate change, as well as links to selected resources that provide information about possible solutions.
