Climate change is changing our economy, health, and communities in diverse ways.

Scientists warn that if
we do nor aggressively curb climate change now, the results will likely be disastrous.

Carbon dioxide and other global warming pollutants are collecting in the atmosphere like a thickening
blanket, trapping the sun’s heat and causing the planet to warm up.

Although local temperatures fluctuate naturally, over the past 50 years the average global temperature has
increase at the fastest rate in recorded history. Scientists say the unless we curb the emissions that cause
climate change, average U.S. temperatures could be 3 to 9 degrees higher by the end of century.

Climate change is a complex phenomenon, and its full-scale impacts are hand to predict far in advance.
But each year scientists learn more about how climate change is affecting the planet and our communities,
and most agree that certain consequences are likely to occur if current trends continue.

In addition to impacting our water resources, energy supply, transportation, agriculture, and ecosystems.
United State Global Change Research program concludes that climate change also poses unique
challenges to human health, for example, significant increases in the risk of illness and death related to
extreme heat and heat waves are very likely. Some diseases transmitted by food, water, and insect are
likely to increase. Certain groups, including children, the elderly, and the poor, are most vulnerable to a
range of climate-related health effects. These impacts will result in significant costs tour families and the
economy.

Here is the good news: technologies exist today to make cars that run cleaner and burn less gas.
Modernize power plants and generate electricity from non polluting source, and cut or electricity use
through energy efficiency. The Challenges is to be sure these solutions are put to use.

Natural Resources Defense council (NRDC) is tackling global warming on two main fronts-cutting
pollution and expanding clean energy. Transitioning to a clean energy economy will bring new jobs and
reduce air pollution. We cannot afford to wait.
