Climate change is impacting all parts of the United States. The number of hurricanes hitting the eastern seaboard is increasing. The western states are suffering from increasing number of fires. If the temperature keeps rising it will only get worse.
The United States is directly responsible for about 14% of global CO2 emissions (see EIA). Further, additional CO2 is used to produce goods and transport them to the United States from other countries. Additionally, the United States is the world’s greatest financial and military power.
