Climate Change

Climate change is an unequivocal threat to every Rhode Islander. It is the state’s greatest environmental concern. Coastal and inland flooding, heat waves, water and air quality issues, high-intensity storms, biodiversity loss, and disease represent some of the major challenges already visible in Rhode Island today. Audubon has been a tireless advocate of responsible climate change policy, a promoter of green infrastructure, and a supporter of efforts toward climate resiliency. But climate change requires every Rhode Islander to enlist in taking action, from carpools and backyard plantings to changes in consumption habits and the wider adoption of clean energy--through small steps and large strides. Climate change threatens every Rhode Islander; every Rhode Islander is responsible to act.
