Governor Andrew Cuomo announced state funding of the New York Climate Change Science Clearinghouse--a Cornell collaboration--in his annual Earth Day message about new environmental initiatives for New York State.

Collaborators including Cornell, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will create the searchable online repository of scientific data and literature about climate change in New York. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority will fund the project through the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative fund.

Hosted by Cornell, the clearinghouse will be accessible to the public and used to inform research and policy decisions. Art DeGaetano (EAS), ACSF Faculty Fellow and director of the NOAA Northeast Regional Climate Center, will lead the Cornell team. DeGaetano remarked, “This project will provide the information necessary for policymakers and decision makers to reach scientifically sound decisions regarding climate change.”
