HURRICANE SANDY: ADAPTING TO THE IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE


 

“We want our children to live in an America that isn’t burdened by debt, that isn’t weakened by inequality, that isn’t threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet.”
– President Barack Obama

 

‘Extreme Weather Is The New Normal… The denial and deliberation from extremists on both sides about the causes of climate change are distracting us from addressing its inarguable effects.”
– NY Governor, Andrew Cuomo

 

“Our climate is changing, and while the increase in extreme weather we have experienced in New York City and around the world may or may not be the result of it, the risk that it may be — given the devastation it is wreaking — should be enough to compel all elected leaders to take immediate action.”
-NYC Mayor Bloomberg
