fresh voices from the front lines of change







Today the Obama administration released its comprehensive National Climate Assessment in both digital and PDF form. It's packed with hard data on how much global warming we've already suffered, how it has hurt us and how much worse it could get.

Surely you've heard before that the planet is getting hotter. But for many, the prospect of shorter winters and longer summers just isn't disturbing enough.

However, today's report drives home the myriad of ways we all would be impacted if we refuse to protect climate. Here are just some of the charts that will prompt you to act.

3. Does It Seem Like Your Allergies Have Been Worse? It's Because They Have Been.

4. Global Warming Is No Big Deal, If You Like Ticks.

5. It's OK, Texas. It's Not Like You Need Water.
