New resource available for Journalists on Torrential Downpours, Flooding, & Climate Change

Announcing:  The first installment of “Quick Facts”, our extreme weather and climate change factsheet series, is now live and available to the public.


Rainy days got you down? You’re not alone.

Record-breaking rainfall and subsequent flooding are wreaking havoc across much of the United States–with more rain and flooding anticipated in the weeks ahead.

Whether you’re a journalist, scientist, educator, or concerned citizen, your challenge lies in accurately communicating the relationship between these extreme weather events and climate change.

Climate Communication has partnered with SciLine–a nonprofit, nonpartisan, science-based service–to bring you “Quick Facts on Torrential Rain, Flooding, and Climate Change”, which presents the latest research findings on this topic, vetted by experts, along with contact information for accessible scientists willing to serve as expert sources.

We encourage you to take advantage of our Quick Facts primer and the other resources for journalists available from SciLine and on our resources page.
