MIT NEWS OFFICE Revamped MIT Climate Portal aims to inform and empower the public Environmental Solutions Initiative Thursday, October 1, 2020

Stepping up its ongoing efforts to inform and empower the public on the issue of climate change, MIT today announced a dramatic overhaul of the MIT Climate Portal,, which provides timely, science-based information about the causes and consequences of climate change — and what can be done to address it.

“From vast wildfires to an unusually active hurricane season, we are already getting a glimpse of what our climate-changed future looks like,” says Maria T. Zuber, MIT’s vice president for research. “With this website, we aim to communicate in rigorous but accessible ways what the science tells us: Yes, human-caused climate change is an urgent, serious problem; and yes, we can do something about it. Addressing climate change is an institutional priority, and this kind of public engagement is one way we hope to accelerate solutions.”
