Holding Climate Polluters Responsible Where the Stakes are Highest
It's time climate polluters help taxpayers with the costs of impacts
With 5 inches of sea level rise since the 1980s, flooding is a regular part of life (even on sunny days), and storm surge poses an ever-present risk to the area's homes and businesses. These impacts fall disproportionately on low-income and communities of color. It's time for elected officials to stand up for taxpayers, who for too long have borne the costs of climate change alone. Climate polluters should be held accountable.
