Description

Climate change is here. The effects of human activity over the years have exacerbated the long term effects on the global climate. Critical infrastructure across the United States is threatened by natural disasters that result in damaging outcomes. In 2020 alone, there have been record-breaking climate events: California has experienced raging wildfires that have burned millions of acres and displaced thousands of people from their homes, the Gulf and the East Coast are experiencing more severe and frequent hurricanes, and the weather is changing and becoming more damaging due to the rapidly progressing climate crisis. For the United States, this could result in heavy damage to the environment, loss of life, and a weakened critical infrastructure throughout the country.
