Presentation Description/Abstract

You read about it all the time: The climate is changing. Temperatures are rising, snow and rainfall patterns are shifting, and more extreme climate events – like heavy rainstorms and record high temperatures – are already happening. Many of these observed changes are linked to the rising levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, caused by human activities. Fortunately, individuals, businesses, governments, and other organizations are taking action to address the causes and impacts of climate change. This presentation includes information about the basics of climate change science, what EPA is doing about climate change, and what you can do to help.
