Clean, Secure, Resilient: Investing in America’s Future:

Pre-launch of Climate Week NYC 2013

As Hurricane Sandy and the ongoing drought have demonstrated, a changing climate accompanied by more extreme weather poses serious risks to the United States. In 2012 alone, major weather disasters cost the US more than 300 lives and US$110 billion in damages – the second most after 2005.

However, as business leaders, military officers, and other civil society pioneers are proving, addressing climate change also brings major opportunities to increase energy security, grow the economy, and build stronger communities.

On the eve of the 5th anniversary of Climate Week NYC, we are hosting an exclusive one-hour media briefing with top-tier journalists from international, US national and local NYC media, to learn how some of the country’s foremost leaders are forging ahead to invest in a future America that is clean, secure, and resilient.
