Effects of Global Warming in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut

Summer in the Tri-state Region, which includes parts of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, could feel like the typical summer in Savannah, Georgia by the end of the century unless we take action to reduce heat-trapping emissions today.



Lower-emissions scenarios represent a shift away from fossil fuels in favor of clean energy technologies, causing heat-trapping emissions to decline by mid-century.

Higher-emissions scenarios represent continued heavy reliance on fossils fuels, causing heat-trapping emissions to rise rapidly over the century.
