Realtime Fingerprints


Climate Central’s Realtime Fingerprints program develops tools like the Climate Shift Index ™ to help reveal how climate change is disrupting our world.

Our first operational tool, the Climate Shift Index ™ provides daily estimates of how climate change is impacting air temperature. It builds on a decade of research on climate change attribution to put a number on the influence of climate change on daily high and low temperatures.
