Climate Change is a Reality -- Today, and we need to make decisions differently

Temperatures will continue to increase. Weather will continue to be volatile. Droughts will continue. Fresh water supplies will continue to decrease. What do you need to change to cope with the new reality? Today. Not in 10 years. This year.

PROBLEM | Impact of Coal, Oil, and Gas

SOLUTION | Stop burning Coal, Oil, and Gas, and make lower risk choices.

We are beginning to see climate change impacts in our daily lives. You might not have put 2 and 2 together to understand that events such as water supplies and agriculture prices are the result of heat trapping pollution ... and climate change.

I know... you just want to know what to do.

You need timely, specific information to make "informed decisions" about everything you make decisions about. For example, it is important to take climate change into account for insurance plans, building, food supplies, travel... and even where you will retire!

Health, Economy, Temperature and are changing faster than adaptation!

Aging and heat waves don't mix. Heat wave caused illnesses and deaths are expected to increase in cities.

The Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States Report

The report summarizes the science and the impacts of climate change on the United States, now and in the future. It focuses on climate change impacts in different regions of the U.S. and on various aspects of society and the economy such as energy, water, agriculture, and health. It’s also a report written in plain language, with the goal of better informing public and private decision making at all levels. In addition to discussing the impacts of climate change in the U.S., the report also highlights the choices we face in response to human-induced climate change.

It is clear that impacts in the United States are already occurring and are projected to increase in the future, particularly if the concentration of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere continues to rise.

So, choices about how we manage greenhouse gas emissions will have far-reaching consequences for climate change impacts. Similarly, there are choices to be made about adaptation strategies that can help to reduce or avoid some of the undesirable impacts of climate change. This report provides many of the scientific underpinnings for effective decisions to be made – at the national and at the regional level. Some Key findings include:

  1. WEATHER | Climate changes are underway in the United States and are projected to grow. Climate-related changes are already observed in the United States and its coastal waters. These include increases in heavy downpours, rising temperature and sea level, rapidly retreating glaciers, thawing permafrost, lengthening growing seasons, lengthening ice-free seasons in the ocean and on lakes and rivers, earlier snowmelt, and alterations in river flows. These changes are projected to grow.

  2. FOOD | Crop and livestock production will be increasingly challenged. Agriculture is considered one of the sectors most adaptable to changes in climate. However, increased heat, pests, water stress, diseases, and weather extremes will pose adaptation challenges for crop and livestock production.

  3. HEALTH | Threats to human health will increase. Health impacts of climate change are related to heat stress, waterborne diseases, poor air quality, extreme weather events, and diseases transmitted by insects and rodents. Robust public health infrastructure can reduce the potential for negative impacts.
