Climate action

There are no better investments to be made than the ones we make in our own communities. President Barack Obama recently took action to address climate change in communities throughout the country by announcing the first-ever limits on carbon pollution, as well as plans to prepare our infrastructure for the effects of climate change, invest in our clean energy infrastructure and promote energy efficiency.

Today we must respond to the urgent call for action because more frequent extreme weather as a result of climate change demands that we safeguard our communities. Stronger and more damaging storms, flooding, heat waves, prolonged drought and other disasters are here to stay and we can't wait to act. The costs of inaction are real and mounting, as the recent wave of extreme weather events across the world makes clear.
