The "Iowa Climate Statement 2017: It’s not just the heat, it’s the humidity!" was released last week.

The 7th annual Iowa Climate Statement was endorsed by 190 science faculty, researchers and educators from 39 Iowa colleges and universities, including the University of Iowa.

Since 2011, researchers and educators at nearly every college and university in Iowa have produced annual statements to communicate in plain language the state of climate science and the impacts of climate change on Iowans.
