Obama Administration Announces Climate Data Initiative
The Obama administration hopes to fight global warming with the power of numbers, maps and even gaming-type simulations.
The White House is announcing an initiative to provide private companies and local governments better access to already public climate data.
The idea is that with that data they can help the public understand the risks they face, especially in coastal areas where flooding is a big issue.
The government is also working with several high-tech companies, such as Google, Microsoft and Intel, to come up with tools to make communities more resilient in dealing with weather extremes, like flooding, heat waves and drought.
