1) Climate Change: Tomorrow, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will issue the first part of its 6th major assessment report, the most comprehensive synthesis of what we know about the evidence of climate change, its causes, its impacts, and what we can do about it. Climate scientists on Twitter are hinting that the report will be quite dire, but that there are solutions that are attainable. You can read more here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2021/08/06/climate-news-un-ipcc/. Look for the reporting tomorrow, and then contact our three Members of Congress about doing more to combat climate change and create more resilient communities that can adapt to the changes that cannot be prevented.
