The 2014 National Climate Assessment is the most comprehensive analysis to date outlining how climate change affects the United States and is projected to affect it in the future. HabitatSeven was tasked with bringing climate change science into the digital age through a highly shareable architecture and mobile first design.
The National Climate Assessment summarizes the impacts of climate change on the United States, now and in the future.
A team of more than 300 experts guided by a 60-member Federal Advisory Committee produced the report, which was extensively reviewed by the public and experts, including federal agencies and a panel of the National Academy of Sciences.
Climate change science has normally been relegated to those in the climate science community and policy world. The objective of this project was to present the scientific data within the report in a way that is more accessible to the public and can function within a social media environment. Every piece of content needed to be shareable and function across smartphones, tablets, and computers.
