Two damning new scientific reports — one from the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and more recently, the U.S. government’s own Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA) — reveal the scope of the serious and widespread impacts we are already feeling from climate chan. These important studies reinforce the risks climate change poses to our environment, our economy, and our health. They also reveal that some of the most severe effects will come sooner than expected — unless we accelerate phasing out fossil fuels, drastically reduce our carbon emissions, and transition to cleaner, smarter energy right now.
The urgency of the climate crisis by the new National Climate Assessment makes President Trump’s own ignorance on climate change that much more devastating. But the worst impacts can still be avoided if we compel local and national leaders step up and lead the fight against climate change. Call on your officials to join us today.
NRDC is standing strong against Trump, including taking the fight to the courtroom. Send a message to Trump and Wheeler that you stand firmly against any of their attempts to attack our environment, our climate, or our public health.
President Donald Trump
New scientific climate reports show that we must act NOW to save people and our planet
