Climate Risks and Preparedness

The science is clear:  addressing climate change must include strategies that both reduce heat-trapping pollution and increase resilience against current and ongoing climate impacts. Extreme weather and other climate impacts are already affecting communities, wildlife, and businesses across the planet. Understanding these effects and investing in climate preparedness are critical to ensuring our economies, public health, and natural resources remain resilient in a warming world. Investing in climate-smart strategies today will stimulate economic growth and save billions of dollars in future climate impact costs, making it economically and ecologically wise public policy.
