Climate change threatens to raise global temps 5F by the end of this century. It will deliver disease, water and food shortages, floods and extreme weather, species extinctions, ocean acidification and crumbling political systems. Greater Greater Washington argues for an increase in efforts to create sustainable cities. But this is not a case where every little bit helps. This is a case where every little bit won’t be enough. Massive change is needed.
