Initiate Climate Leadership - Fast!

The United States is the second-largest polluter in the world, emitting 5,319 million metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere in 2018.

The temperature of our planet has increased by 2 degrees since 1880, and 16 of the last 17 years have been the warmest on record globally. While 2 degrees over 140 years may not sound like a lot, consider that the optimal temperature for the human body is 98.6 degrees. If you increased that to 100.6, you would be sick. The human body dies at 108. Every degree matters.

Climate change is costing us a fortune and destroying people’s lives. Over the past decade, extreme weather and the health impact of burning fossil fuels have cost the American economy at least $240 billion per year.
