When climate change is in the news, it's usually because of a scary new temperature record or a mass coral die-off, or because an enormous chunk of Greenland disappeared and nobody noticed. But at the end of the day, the thing that most of us really care about is how we'll be affected. Now, NOAA is making it easier than ever to find out, with a new Climate Explorer app that shows just how screwed (or spared) your little sliver of the country will be.
Space may be called the "final frontier" but what about unexplored areas that are on our very own Earth? The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been using the Okeanos Explorer to document uncharted waters since 2010 and it's off to do it again, this time at the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument.
FOR DECADES. . .THE US NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE. . . HAS ISSUED ITS FORECAST DISCUSSIONS IN SHOUTY CAPITAL LETTERS. . .USING FRAGMENTED SENTENCES. . .SEPARATED BY ELLIPSES.

Would you just look at him? Sprung to life out of a Pixar movie, the ghostly little fella pictured above was discovered last month by Deep Discoverer, the deep-diving robot that travels with NOAA's Okeanos Explorer. Spotted 4290m beneath the surface, it's the deepest observation of a so-called incirrate octopus ever, and it might be a new species.
El Niño hasn't left the building — it's just taking a few days to sober up between benders. But will it continue to deliver the precipitation punch in the gut the US West Coast was promised? One particular factor might determine California's fate.
We're on location for today's SpaceX launch of the Jason-3 ocean monitoring satellite. Afterwards, SpaceX will make their first barge landing attempt in the Pacific Ocean. Join us as we report live from Vandenberg Air Force Base!
A heatwave is keeping most of the US toasty right now, but the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says they're all living in denial — winter is coming, and it has a data visualisation to prove it.
We suspected it was coming, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has just confirmed: July 2015 was without a doubt the hottest month in recorded history. Hot damn.
