Addressing Climate Change
Maryland has experienced climate changes over the past century including warmer winters, wetter autumns and springs and drier, hotter summers. With its vast shoreline, Maryland is extremely vulnerable to the effects of climate change, particularly sea level rise which is now projected to increase by as much as 3.7 feet by the year 2100. To help secure a sustainable future for all Marylanders, the State of Maryland is committed to combating climate change – both the drivers and the consequences.
“The earth’s climate is changing. The time to act is now.”
