Sea level rise will threaten hundreds of thousands of homes in the coming decades — and many communities have built a striking number of new homes in the future flood zone.
Trees have widespread climate benefits, from lowering cooling costs to reducing our carbon footprint.
See how trees in these cities are improving air quality, reducing flood risks, and offsetting carbon emissions.
Global average temperature has already warmed 1°C beyond pre-industrial levels, on its way to 1.5°C without deep emissions cuts.
Dramatic cuts in CO2 are needed to keep Earth from warming more than 2.7°F (1.5°C) above pre-industrial levels.
