My first job was working for the Forest Service. I learned a lot about fires that summer. This is about climate change. It's about health, as millions live where it's unsafe to breathe "fresh air" now. It's about the economy, as people lose their homes & businesses. We must act.
We must address climate change. From wildfires across the planet - Australia, the Amazon, the American west - to 5 named tropical systems in the Atlantic, we see the effects are getting more extreme by the year.
Climate change affects our health, from ashen skies to toxic mold after a flood. Climate change affects our economy, as we spend money and resources rebuilding communities. Climate change affects racial disparities because those resources aren't equitably shared. We must act.
