Climate Science

The Challenge

For too long, climate change has been represented by melting ice caps and polar bears. Many do not understand the impacts and how acting on climate can positively affect our lives. We need to help Angelenos understand the climate science locally so we can collaborate on creating a better city and improving lives.


Contextualizing climate change so that we can all work together on local solutions. By explaining the science of climate change in relatable language, we can all better understand its effects on our region and support local climate action. By summarizing climate studies and news and putting them into a local context, we can help Angelenos understand the challenge and embrace the solutions.



Reflecting Sunlight: Albedo as a Means to Reduce the Greenhouse Effect
