THE TRUST FOR PUBLIC LAND ON WHITE HOUSE CLIMATE REPORT

November 27, 2018
San Francisco, CA

Diane Regas, President and CEO of The Trust for Public Land, today issued the following statement regarding The White House’s National Climate Assessment:

“The White House’s Fourth National Climate Assessment clearly described the new reality that people across the country are already experiencing: a rapidly changing climate is causing devastating loss of lives, homes, and damaging our economy. With unprecedented wildfires in California, as well as deadly heat waves, prolonged drought, and destructive hurricanes, it is clear that the time is now to reduce carbon pollution and protect people from the impacts of climate change. Parks and open space offer a unique solution to these problems, as they’re able to reduce pollution while protecting people from the impacts of climate change.”

The Trust for Public Land Climate-Smart Cities program is working to build green infrastructure in communities across the country that can mitigate the impacts of climate change. To learn more, please visit:tpl.org/climatesmart
