Released today -- Iowa Climate Statement: Will COVID-19 Lessons Help Us Survive Climate Change?

The 10th Annual Iowa Climate Statement, endorsed by 230 Iowa science faculty and researchers from 37 Iowa colleges and universities. It's been my privilege to get to know many of these faculty and researchers over the years -- they do good work!

Key points:

  • The best available science as described by professional organizations remains by far the most reliable source of information.

  • The cost of late action far outweighs the costs of prevention and preparation.

  • Building community resilience against multiple threats is critical, especially for the most vulnerable among us.
