Two major reports were recently issued that confirm the urgency of the climate crisis. In October, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued its special report on global warming of 1.5 degrees C and on the day after Thanksgiving, the National Climate Assessment, backed by 13 federal agencies, was quietly issued by the Trump administration. These reports reiterate once again the gravity of the climate crisis we face. Climate change is here and is an intensifying danger to the United States and the entire world. It reminds us here in the Ocean State of the urgency of our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fund projects that enhance the resiliency of our communities.
