Cleaning The Atmosphere


In the Midwest, climate change is expected to negatively affect human health and exacerbate existing challenges. Air quality is already poor in parts of the Midwest and is projected to worsen with rising temperatures. Precipitation in the Midwest is expected become more intense, leading to increased flood damage, strained drainage systems, and reduced drinking water availability. Midwestern cities with impervious infrastructure may result in surface runoff entering combined storm and sewage drainage systems. When these systems are overloaded during intense rainstorms, raw sewage overflow can result, impacting clean water availability.
