We are also committed to working with external organizations to further increase awareness and use of the climate data. We have already worked with Argonne, The National Fish & Wildlife Foundation, EcoRise, the New York Power Authority and a group of five universities in the Southeast on resilience projects. We will continue to look for opportunities to build on these efforts with additional organizations, particularly NGOs, that would like to use the data.
Truly adapting to climate change requires close collaboration between the public, private and nonprofit sectors. It’s an area where you don’t compete; you collaborate. The data we’re releasing today is one piece to help solve the climate puzzle, and we look forward to the next steps on our journey toward making the U.S. a more climate-resilient country.
