Plain-English Resources for Climate Change and Global Warming 

From the US Government  
NASA: https://climate.nasa.gov/ 
More technical, there is “The Fourth National Climate Assessment”, mandated by the Global Change Research Act of 1990. Web-based overview and highlights:  
Volume 1: The Science. https://science2017.globalchange.gov/ 
Volume 2: Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation. https://nca2018.globalchange.gov/ 

From Scientific Organizations   

National Academy of Sciences: http://sites.nationalacademies.org/sites/climate/index.htm  
Union of Concerned Scientists: https://ucsusa.org/ 
Climate Central: https://www.climatecentral.org/ 
If you are particularly interested in the temperature reconstruction of the last 2000 years (e.g. the “hockey-stick”), you can read this report from the National Academy of Science in response to a request from Congress. You can download the report for free.

Here is Info on What Others Are Doing and What You Can Do About Climate Change 

Learn about the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act of 2019, a bipartisan climate solution: https://energyinnovationact.org/  
Or read the (relatively short) Congressional Resolution introducing and describing the Green or New Deal: https://www.congress.gov/116/bills/hres109/BILLS-116hresih.pdf  
And here is an interesting essay on the Green New Deal written by famous science fiction writer Kim Stanley Robinson and published by Columbia U. In fact, I would read this before reading the resolution above: https://power.buellcenter.columbia.edu/essays/green-new-deal-0  
My colleague Dr. John Cook of the http://skepticalscience website (which is also terrific) is about to publish a new book that looks super useful and fun and he is also developing a phone-based app game https://crankyuncle.com/  
Citizens’ Climate Lobby is “a non-profit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change and which works towards the adoption of fair, effective, and sustainable climate change solutions.” They have chapters across the nation and around the world. https://citizensclimatelobby.org/  
Sometimes, I refer to the Our Children’s Trust lawsuit in my talks. Here is that website: https://www.ourchildrenstrust.org/  
Sometimes I also refer to our work on the environmental cost of beef consumption More info and links can be found on a website I made with students here: holdthebeef.org   
Finally, here is another website we built to explain our own sea level research—Sea Change: How high will the sea rise? http://sealevelstudy.org/
