Florida is at a tipping point with regards to climate change impacts, yet as a state it still has not done enough to mitigate and adapt to climate change. The Florida Climate Pledge is to help Floridians connect the dots between what they care about and how it’s tied to climate change. From our economy to our health, to biodiversity, to our national security, we are already feeling the effects of climate change and it will only get worse. TAKE THE PLEDGE HERE.
