Climate Change and Rapidly Intensifying Hurricanes

As the world continues to warm from the increase in greenhouse gases, the coming decades are likely to bring hurricanes that intensify even more rapidly.

The High Cost of Hot

As additional carbon pollution continues to trap more and more heat in the atmosphere, the higher hot temperatures that result can come with a hefty price tag. Some of those costs hit our wallets in the form of higher energy bills from greater use of air conditioning. Warmer temperatures can also have major health impacts, increasing our vulnerabilities to allergies, asthma, heat stroke and even death.
