Click here to read New Jersey’s newly released Scientific Report on Climate Change.

According to the report, New Jersey has seen the evidence of climate change in its increasingly mild winters, more intense rainfalls, flooding along inland streams and rivers, and more tidal flooding along the coast. These events can threaten public health and safety, destroy property, undermine critical infrastructure, and damage New Jersey’s economy, including the vibrant tourism industry supported by our beloved shore and lake communities.

“New Jersey is working to address and mitigate the impacts of climate change. So far, its efforts have been successful, with New Jersey’s attainment of the 2020 greenhouse gas reduction goals years ahead of schedule. New Jersey is now looking ahead to its 2050 goal and is accelerating its transition to a low carbon economy through reducing its carbon pollution, expanding its clean energy infrastructure, and building resilient communities.”
