What is Rhode Island Doing to Prepare for Climate Change?

The Ocean State is already feeling the effects of climate change. Intense storms cause riverine and coastal flooding and some coastal communities regularly flood during extreme high tides. This talk will summarize how Rhode Island’s state leaders are working with local communities to prepare for climate change. Meg will also review bills under consideration at the General Assembly that relate to climate change policy.
