Global Warming: Energy Solutions

The energy choices we make have an enormous impact. Electricity generated by coal burning power plants is a major source of global warming pollution in the United States. But by reducing how much energy we use through energy-efficient technologies and by displacing dirty fossil fuels with clean electricity sources, we can build a cost-effective and sustainable energy future.

Global Warming: International

Climate change is real and already underway. Although this is a global phenomenon, different regions of the world have their own specific consequences and unique concerns. In the tropics, for instance, plans to curb deforestation must take into account the needs and incentives of local economies. Read More

Global Warming: Southwestern States

Climate change is real and already underway. Although this is a global phenomenon, it has very specific consequences for the different regions, states, cities, and neighborhoods where we live. To help raise awareness about the local impact of global warming and the costs of inaction, UCS has gathered and synthesized regional climate analyses that can help lay the groundwork for effective solutions.

Global Warming

The Earth is warming and human activity is the primary cause. Climate disruptions put our food and water supply at risk, endanger our health, jeopardize our national security, and threaten other basic human needs. Our country is at a crossroads: the United States can act responsibly and seize the opportunity to lead by developing new, innovative solutions, as well as immediately putting to use the many practical solutions we have at our disposal today; or we can choose to do nothing and deal with severe consequences later. At UCS we believe the choice is clear. It is time to push forward toward a brighter, cleaner future. Read More
