Climate Impacts

Climate change increases risks to our economy, health, infrastructure, food and water, and almost every facet of life and governance. The prevalence and severity of storms and wildfires; the loss of landmass and flooding of homes; forced migration; and the decimation of crops and natural wonders that have stood for years are accelerating due to climate change. The Center for American Progress diligently seeks to provide a spotlight on the costs of human-caused climate change and the strategies to mitigate climate impacts in the future.
