Here is your government at work on Climate Change
Gina McCarthy

As the agency plows forward with new greenhouse gas regulations, McCarthy said it must ramp up its efforts to educate the public about the implications of climate change.

"I am more than a little distressed that the American public is more confused about climate science than when we began our discussions at EPA about what is the science of climate," she said.

EPA's "endangerment" finding -- a document issued last December determining that greenhouse gases threaten human health and welfare -- is important and deserves to be carefully looked at, McCarthy said.

But that document fails to put the threats into plain English that the public can understand, she added. "And I think there is a great deal of fear and anxiety on part of the public about what climate change means in terms of actions we're taking, but there's less understanding about what climate change means in terms of what it means for their lives and the lives of their children," she said.

EPA must do a better job of communicating those implications, she said.

"If we're going to get the actions we need," she said, "we need to have a groundswell of better understanding about what climate science means so that we can have the foundation necessary to take the actions we need to take.
