Death by Degrees

The sign of climate change are already here. "Death by Degrees" is a series of reports looking at the damaging health effects of climate change by states or regions within the United States. We encourage you to learn about the public health threats climate change poses in your state/region and contact your elected officials to support climate policies that reduce our reliance on dirty fossil fuels and supports energy efficiency, conservation and clean renewable energy production.
