The Cape Ann region is experiencing stronger storms, summer droughts, and rising sea levels. These are the impacts of climate change. Climate change is here. It is happening.
It is likely that the earth will warm past 1.5 degree Celsius, the identified threshold that would reduce the likelihood of the worst effects of climate change. New England and the Gulf of Maine are warming faster than any other areas on the planet and that means Cape Ann is warming fast.
What can we do? There are many actions that citizens of Cape Ann can take right now. This includes taking individual actions, supporting climate policies, and learning about how our climate is changing and what’s ahead so we can plan and be ready.
