Climate Change State Resource Locator
In the federal framework of the U.S., the fifty states have been called Laboratories of Democracy, where experiments in social policy can be carried out and observed before committing the entire nation to a specific program, policy, or course of action. . In recent years, policy innovation on climate change has been primarily at the state and local level. It is important to collect and examine information on those experiments to realize their potential benefits.
This locator provides access to climate-change related resources developed by a variety of state and local environmental agencies, including:
- local and regional greenhouse gas inventories
- climate action plans
- sector-specific tools and resources for impact mitigation
- state and local commissions charged with developing and overseeing climate-change related programs.
