MAYDAY – And Your State Probably Isn’t Prepared

MAYDAY – And Your State Probably Isn’t Prepared because it doesn’t take into account disasters resulting from climate change, a new study finds, reports Tim McDonnell at the Climate Desk. Southeast coastal and inland states – you know, places like Illinois, where a super tornado recently shredded a community – are most likely to ignore the climate hazards, reports Bobby Magill at Climate Central.

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 .

This is how YOU can make a difference.
