An Unfamiliar State: Local Impacts of Global Warming in New Jersey

Global warming poses a serious threat to the future of New Jersey’s environment, economy, and the health and welfare of its citizens.

Global warming will impact every corner of the state. If global warming pollution across the world continues to rise, New Jersey will be a different place in 100 years, with an altered coastline, greater extremes of rainfall and drought, higher levels of smog in parts of the state, and shifts in the plant and animal species that call New Jersey home.

If we act now, there is still time to prevent many of the worst impacts of global warming. New Jersey must do its share to reduce global warming pollution and set an example for other states and the nation to follow.
