On the heels of a summer that saw many parts of the country hit by record heat, severe storms and damaging floods, a new Environment New Hampshire report documents how global warming could lead to extreme weather events becoming even more common in the future.
Patterns of extreme weather are changing in the United States, and climate science predicts that further changes are in store. Extreme weather events lead to billions of dollars in economic damage and loss of life each year. Scientists project that global warming could affect the frequency, timing, location and severity of many types of extreme weather events in the decades to come.
Five rivers flowing into the Great Bay are contaminated with Mercury—according to the new Environment New Hampshire report, Dirty Energy’s Assault on our Health: Mercury. The report found that power plants in New Hampshire emitted 312 pounds of mercury pollution in 2009. Midwestern plants emitted over 55,000 pounds of pollution threatening the New Hampshire forests.
New Hampshire's dependence on oil threatens our environment, our economy, and our national security. We can cut our oil use and reduce this dangerous pollution by requiring automobile manufacturers to meet stronger global warming pollution and fuel efficiency standards.
