Impacts & Solutions

Our work is grounded in the scientific reality of climate change and evidence of the current and future harms it poses to communities across the globe. Climate change is primarily caused by heat-trapping pollution from the combustion of fossil fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas for electricity, transportation, and industrial processes. This pollution causes significant harmful changes to the global atmosphere and drives extreme weather events, sea-level rise, ocean acidification, droughts, and flooding.
