7 Simple Ways to Take Action During Climate Action Week and Beyond!

By Erin Halley on September 21, 2021

Climate change impacts us all. The fires, drought, and floods that we are seeing across the country are all being driven by the warming of our planet. The scientific community is attributing the increasing temperatures globally to these disastrous events all over the world with increasingly negative implications on the economy and society, such as the loss of billions of working hours because of excessive heat. In fact, according to a new report from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) spanning from 1970-2019, these types of disasters have gone up 5 times during this 50 year span, in which climate change is one of the contributing factors. 

It’s time to take action. You can make a difference with small steps. This week is Climate Action Week, 9/20-9/25.
