Climate Change May Lead Many Americans to Move
Recently, climate change has led to extreme weather disasters like wildfires, tornadoes, and hurricanes that have destroyed homes. As these negative effects of global warming directly impact Americans, many will likely move in an effort to find relief.
The MIT Climate Portal mentions that a new report by several U.S. government agencies states that sea levels could rise up to one foot by 2050 near coastlines. Consequently, many Americans may rethink their decisions to buy and move into a beach house.
With climate change reaching disturbing levels, there has been more and more heatwave experiences. The heat has risen and gotten worse over the years as mentioned by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. On top of these uncomfortable living conditions, many people have had to face rising electricity bills.
According to the United Nations, the window of opportunity for humans to slow the rise in global temperatures and prevent the worst consequences associated with global warming is quickly closing. Most of this global warming is being caused by greenhouse gas emissions from the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation, affecting every region of Earth.
In order to help avert this impending crisis caused by climate change, Mission Tomorrow is committed to engaging in sustainable practices to help mitigate global warming. It takes one small change at a time to accomplish something significant, but we have to start here.
