How Georgia is doing its part to fight climate change, and how you can aid the effort

External News Details

Climate change, which has long been framed as a "future" problem, is really a "here and now" problem, says Kim Cobb, Georgia Power Chair and ADVANCE Professor in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. Cobb is also on the leadership team of the Georgia Climate Project. For Earth Day 2022, Cobb listed how Georgia's economy is impacted by climate change, and what individuals and families can do to ease their carbon footprint and help the environment. "The science tells us that every little bit of warming that we can reduce in this decade or next decade is going to reap dividends in future generations and also protect our economy and keep us safe today and going forward," Cobb says. "So it's not too late."
