FOCUS ON: Climate

Our atmosphere is getting warmer and our weather is getting more extreme. Although earth’s climate has experienced natural cycles of warming and cooling over millions of years, the global warming of today is caused by human activity and is altering the atmosphere in ways never before seen by human beings.

This has grave public health impacts, and our children will suffer the most.

One thing to do: Tell the EPA that you care about climate change and support limiting carbon pollution from power plants.
