Extreme weather caused by climate change is already harming people around the world.
NRDC tackles this challenge at its root cause: pollution from burning fossil fuels. But even as we push for pollution limits and a conversion to clean energy, we help global communities prepare for an already changing climate. We advocate for water-saving strategies, flood controls, and other solutions that prepare cities for extreme weather. We urge government agencies to consider climate change in long-term planning, and we design programs that help communities respond to climate-related health risks.
