Climate change is a global issue but we're also seeing changes locally.

Climate change, the long-term change in Earth's weather patterns — is one of the most pressing environmental and social issues of our time.

A changing climate brings with it extreme heat, drought, flooding, more intense weather and storms, rising sea levels, and a host of other impacts that all contribute to enormous environmental, social and economic challenges.
