With climate change, we face a choice: action or inaction.
If we don’t act, the global average temperature will continue its rapid climb,
and the temperature changes in the United States will mean serious impacts across all sectors of the U.S. economy.
Today, we're already seeing more extreme weather, rising seas, changing rain and snow patterns, and more drought.
These impacts, and others, are expected to worsen with climate change.
But what if we come together, as a global community, to address climate change?
EPA's newly released "Benefits of Global Action Report" looks at the consequences if we don’t act and the pay-off for the U.S. of global action.
If we act on climate, all Americans, especially our children and grandchildren, will see the benefits in our health and our environment.
We can prevent tens of thousands of premature deaths annually in the United States by the end of the century,
through air quality improvements and less extreme temperatures.
By the year 2100, we can cut the increase of severe drought by half, and avoid more than 10 billion dollars in agriculture losses per year, helping keep food prices affordable.
We can prevent billions of dollars in infrastructure costs by the end of the century, cutting the number of vulnerable bridges in half,
and saving Americans approximately three billion dollars in annual costs to coastal property, and up to seven billion dollars in road repairs.
We can prevent the most severe climate impacts, if we act now.
The choices that we, and the global community make today, are the legacy we will leave to our children and grandchildren.
U.S. leadership is crucial to global climate action.
The Clean Air Act, established by Congress, obligates us to protect the health and welfare of Americans, today and tomorrow.
That’s why EPA is taking action to address the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States.
EPA’s Clean Power Plan will cut hundreds of millions of tons of heat-trapping carbon pollution from power plants
while cutting harmful smog and soot-forming emissions, too.
Our fuel efficiency standards for cars and trucks will cut over 6 billion tons of carbon pollution
and save Americans 1.7 trillion dollars at the pump.
We're acting to make a difference on climate change.
