New White House initiative tries to sway public on climate threats

The White House launched an effort today aimed at helping communities and individuals understand their vulnerability to climate change, starting with rising sea levels that will swamp the coasts. The Climate Data Initiative springs from President Obama's commitment last year to improve how the government provides information about warming. It's also part of a broader push spearheaded by White House counselor John Podesta to make climate change more tangible to an American public that polls suggest sees the issue as distant and theoretical.
