With each passing summer, more of our summertime activities are affected by climate change.
Some of these changes are direct connections like hotter summers contributing to droughts and wildfires or to an increase in hurricanes, flooding, and sea level rise. Other connections to climate change are less readily apparent but not less significant, such as increases in toxic algae outbreaks or parasites like ticks and mosquitoes that each can put local communities, pets, and wildlife at a greater risk. Even summer pastimes like baseball are being affected by climate change both on and off the field.
This report chronicles the latest scientific findings on these issues and recent developments in the fight against climate change and how we can engage on these issues to save our summers now and for future generations.
