Climate change is now a serious economic issue. Last year, climate-related disasters inflicted nearly $150 billion in damage to America’s economy. In Pennsylvania alone, climate disasters led by Hurricane Ida cost the Commonwealth between $2 billion – $5 billion, according to NOAA. And that’s not including
rising insurance rates, increased food costs from flooding and drought, lost worker productivity and other expenses that are hitting businesses in the balance sheet and every Pennsylvanian in the pocketbook. The good news is that we can blunt the growing cost of climate change while simultaneously creating
jobs, driving new economic growth and attracting new investments through smart climate and clean energy policies now being considered in Harrisburg and Washington, DC. Please join fellow business leaders, policymakers and E2 to learn more and help create a brighter, more prosperous Pennsylvania.
