The prospect of climate change is driving a renewed effort within the scientific community to develop a system of climate services to inform decision-makers about the potential impacts of climate change. Climate literacy is part of a coordinated effort to make people more aware of their natural environment and factors, both natural and anthropogenic, that cause disruptions to that environment. A more informed user is a more effective user; this concept lies at the heart of climate services. This paper concludes with an examintion of the importance of climate literacy as a component of a U.S. National Climate Service
