International Panel on Climate Change: The IPCC is a scientific intergovernmental body set up by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to provide the decision-makers with an objective source of information about climate change.

US Climate Change Science Program: This program is tasked with integrating federal research on global change and climate change. The site features 21 synthesis reports on national climate change issues.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA): From daily weather forecasts, severe storm warnings and climate monitoring to fisheries management, coastal restoration and supporting marine commerce, NOAA plays a role in protecting life and property and conserving and protecting natural resources. NOAA's dedicated scientists use cutting-edge research and high-tech instrumentation to provide citizens, planners, emergency managers and other decision makers with reliable information they need when they need it.

NOAA National Climatic Data Center: The Data Center has weekly, monthly, annual and real time state of the climate reports. Data is provided on global surface temperature anomalies, climate at a glance, climate impact indicators, climatic extremes, and weather events.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Earth Observatory: This interactive Web site includes experiments that can be used to teach all ages about the art and science of space-based remote sensing, focusing on how NASA uses remote sensing to study how and why the Earth changes.

National Center for Atmospheric Research: NCAR has 120 Ph.D. researchers and hundreds of visiting scientists conduct interdisciplinary research with state of the art research tool. The organization seeks to better understand our atmosphere and how weather and climate affect the Earth. The latest in atmospheric research is highlighted.

Southeast Climate Consortium: The Consortium's mission is to provide scientifically sound information and decision support tools (programs, education and publications) for agriculture, forestry, and water resources management in the Southeastern USA.
