Address climate change and its impacts to Idaho.



Idaho Must Play Its Part in Helping to Reduce Carbon Emissions: We live in a state dominated by our natural resources, and climate change has the potential to significantly affect Idaho in ways that most Idahoans would find detrimental.  We will likely face larger forest and range fires, unpredictable precipitation and water availability, changes to our agriculture patterns, less snow in our mountains and more.  If we bury our head in the sand and ignore the reality of climate change, it is inevitable that we will face unpredictable consequences that will impact our economy and natural resources.  We must begin to shape our policies in all of our state agencies to begin addressing climate change.
