From the 8 August 2011 Huffington Post article by Wendy Gordon

Do you live in a climate-ready city? How prepared is your state for the challenges to health and the environment being caused by climate change-from the dangers of extreme heat and increased flooding to the spread of ragweed whose pollen causes allergies or mosquitoes that can spread disease?

NRDC just unveiled an incredible web interactive that lets you see how your state might be impacted by climate change. On the site, nrdc.org, you can see local data and maps detailing extreme weather patterns throughout the country, see local climate change vulnerabilities and learn about health problems in your own community that are connected to climate change….

The article also touches on these topics

  • Things to remember about plants and heat
  • Global warming and drinking water availability
  • Which US cities can adapt best to higher temperatures (generally Midwestern cities)
  • Where to go to find listings of most efficient appliances (Smarter Livings Top 10)
