The Obama administration is launching a new online effort to warn the public about the dangers of climate change.

The White House is unveiling a new website Wednesday, climate.data.gov, that will let citizens, businesses and local governments take the latest scientific data and see how their communities will be affected by rising seas, heat waves and drought.

The data used by the website will be collected from the space agency NASA, the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration and other federal government agencies.

The website is part of U.S. President Barack Obama's efforts to boost public support for his initiative to fight climate change.
