EPA Climate Change

The City of Minneapolis wishes to acknowledge and attribute this information to the United States Environmental Protection Agency and other federal agencies for the decades of work that they have done to advance the fight against climate change.  While this information may not be readily available on the EPA’s website, in Minneapolis we know climate change is real.

When we burn fossil fuels such as coal and gas, we pump more and more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. This buildup creates a blanket effect, trapping in heat around the world. If nothing is done to halt this process, the planet we leave our children will be hotter with more violent weather, fewer species and disrupted systems such as food chains.

We are joining cities around the country to make sure people have access to information on climate change. We will continue to take action to adapt to climate threats while reducing our dependence on fossil fuels.
