Unchecked warming emissions are projected to leave hundreds of houses of worship in areas vulnerable to chronic flooding by midcentury.
This warming trend, combined with pollution from cars, power plants and chemical plants, is expected to increase the number of days each year that New Jersey residents inhale unsafe levels of ozone pollution.
Local temperature data from 1970 to 2018 shows warming trends across the country — and Americans are already feeling the effects.
‘Protectors of the Coast’ — What the Northward March of Mangroves Means for Fishing, Flooding and Carbon
Ranges of mangroves have naturally waxed and waned over the years, influenced by the weather, but with climate change has come a crucial reduction in crop- and tree-killing freeze events.
Delaware's future could be shaped by climate action.
Rising temperatures are simultaneously escalating hazards posed by droughts, heat waves, storms and heavy rainfall in the River City, even as they push up sea levels, worsening flood risks.
Recent research shows that unchecked warming pollution could bring concurrent climate crises to U.S. cities by midcentury — and that emissions cuts could reduce the danger.
Between 2010 and 2017 more than 700 homes in Delaware — worth roughly $500 million — were built on land that’s projected to be inundated at least once a year on average by 2050 unless pricey measures are taken to keep the water away.
