Climate Impacts Environment

We know something is different: the weather is getting stranger and more extreme. We experienced the hottest June on record. Bigger forest fires threaten our state – leaving charred communities, air pollution and local economies struggling to recover. Ocean acidification is destroying the livelihoods of fourth-generation fishermen and oyster farmers on Puget Sound. More global warming pollution is making asthma and lung diseases worse – especially for our kids. Hotter, drier weather threatens our water supply, leaving farmers in eastern Washington without water for crops.

We can still turn this ship around and take on this challenge. We need to account for the cost of carbon pollution and cut fossil fuel emissions from the largest emitters. We’re the first generation to feel the effects of climate change and the last generation with a chance to do something about it.

Wildfires in 2014 cost $180 million to fight and burned 425,000 acres—almost 8 times the annual average of 60,000 acres burned in the previous five years.
