Probable Futures Joins Climate.gov’s U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit
Probable Futures, a climate literacy non-profit organization, announced today it has been added to the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit, a U.S. government resource offered on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s climate.gov website.
The U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit was initially launched in 2014 to help people find and use tools, information, and subject matter expertise to build climate resilience, improve the understanding and management of climate-related risks and opportunities, and help make communities and businesses more resilient to extreme weather-related events.
Probable Futures seeks to build climate resilience by promoting climate literacy. Since its founding in 2020, they have worked to develop innovative tools and resources that help individuals and communities better understand the impacts of climate change, take action, and build resilience.
Throughout the Probable Futures site, users will find both data and storytelling. The platform features global maps that visualize climate model projections of heat, drought, and precipitation, and curated narratives of climate impacts worldwide with well-established data supported by the experienced team of scientists at the Woodwell Climate Research Center.
“We are honored to be included as an official resource on NOAA’s U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit,” said Spencer Glendon, founder of Probable Futures. “We believe that by fostering climate literacy we can empower individuals and communities to better understand and adapt to the impacts of climate change. As the newest addition to the Toolkit, we hope to continue serving as a data-driven resource for those who are just starting their climate journey or already fully immersed in it.”
