EPA ... working with many other organizations to collect and communicate data about climate change... EPA has compiled the third edition of this report, presenting 30 indicators to help readers understand observed long-term trends related to the causes and effects of climate change. ...Most indicators focus on the United States, but some include global trends to provide context or a basis for comparison, or because they are intrinsically global in nature....
