The White House Helps Cities Fight Climate Change With Data
President Obama turns to US citizens and local governments to combat global warming.
The Climate Data Initiative is a government platform that offers climate change data to city planners, local governments and the general public, in the hopes that these groups will develop new tools in the fight against global warming.
The new project aims to bring together open government data from groups such as the US Geological Survey and the National Oceanic And Atmospheric Administration, and pair it with data, technology and new programs from tech giants like Google and Intel. The joining of such innovative and powerful enterprises will ensure the project reaches as many influential companies and people worldwide.
