Climate Change

Our dependence on fossil fuels is impacting every aspect of our community, from extreme weather patterns to public health impacts and changes in our food system. Climate change has been attributed to an increase in ozone action days (and more air pollution), longer allergy and asthma seasons, a shortage in food supply and mental health stress. Scientific studies indicate extreme weather events including heat waves and large storms are likely to become more frequent or  intense with human-induced climate change, leading to flooding, mold and displacement from our homes. Let’s use our voices (our influence at the local, state and national level) to combat climate change, steering the country away from fossil fuels like coal and natural gas, and towards a clean energy future powered by wind and solar.
