Montclair Climate Action
NEWS & UPDATES
WHY WE ACT
Our climate is in crisis. Increasing greenhouse gas levels, habitat loss, and unsustainable development have already brought about disastrous effects around the world. Here in New Jersey, the average temperature is rising annually, worsening heat waves, which already kill hundreds per year. Rising sea levels are making coastal flooding more common. Around the world, ice sheets are melting and droughts are afflicting large areas. This is only the beginning; scientists agree that we must act now to avoid far greater harms.
