Whether you know it or not, the work of NOAA—the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration—impacts your life each and every day. America relies on the team of world-class professionals and scientists at NOAA to do essential work ranging from the bottom of the ocean all the way up to the reaches of space.
And now NOAA needs your help!
The Biden administration’s budget blueprint includes $6.9 billion in proposed funding for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration—which would increase NOAA’s budget by more than $1 billion. As climate change continues to wreak havoc on our ocean and coastal communities, these investments in NOAA’s science, conservation, climate and weather mission are more important than ever. It’s now up to Congress to make this a reality.
Take action today—tell Congress to act quickly and fully fund NOAA.
The services that NOAA provides aren’t theoretical. They’re very, very real. And they’re in your hands, on your television and on your dinner plate virtually every day. You don’t see a NOAA logo pop up each time NOAA touches your life, but NOAA is there—whether you’re aware of it or not.
It’s NOAA who is responsible for:
Exploring and protecting the depths of our ocean
Managing America’s fisheries
Protecting endangered marine mammals and other ocean wildlife
Giving you your local nightly weather forecast
Forecasting and tracking hurricanes
Predicting “space weather” to forecast solar storms that could disrupt our nation’s critical satellites, including GPS services that we all rely on every day.
That’s right—NOAA even has a role in keeping the GPS on your phone up and running.
As climate change continues to wreak havoc on our ocean and coastal communities and as we work to create new jobs to make a more resilient nation, these investments in NOAA’s science, conservation, climate and weather mission are more important than ever before.
Take action today—tell Congress to fully fund NOAA.
