2017 Ranks Among Three Warmest Years Ever


In response to data released today by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) declaring 2017 a top-three record-warm year globally, World Wildlife Fund issued the following statement from Lou Leonard, senior vice president of climate change and energy:

“This announcement should shock no one. Mother Nature forced climate-related disasters, from Houston to Puerto Rico to California, into the headlines throughout 2017.  In the United States, 2017 was also a record-breaking year for the costs of these disasters.  This is not a coincidence. 

“The key question is what we do about it. With the costs of inaction piling up, Washington, DC is largely looking the other way. So it is up to a new class of leaders from American businesses, universities, cities and states to pick up the slack.

“This year, we need to break the record for new actions and commitments taken by these new leaders, showing the world that the United States is still in the game no matter what happens inside the beltway.”
