Climate change is the biggest threat to the health and productivity of our ocean and our coastal communities. As part of the American Jobs Plan, the Administration and Congress have the opportunity and obligation to act swiftly and comprehensively to strengthen the economy and avoid the worst consequences of catastrophic climate change.
