Over the next few decades, the City of Long Beach is projected to be vulnerable to climate impacts such as sea level rise and coastal flooding, precipitation-based flooding, extreme heat, drought, and poor air quality. Polluting emissions (known as greenhouse gases (GHGs) produced in Long Beach come from 2 main sources—transportation (54%) and energy used in the buildings where we live and work (40%). The remaining 5% of emissions come from waste. To prepare for and reduce the impacts of climate change, Long Beach is preparing its first ever Climate Action and Adaptation Plan. The actions that will be included in this Plan aim to make Long Beach a low-carbon, climate-resilient city. Your responses to this survey will inform the Plan and we hope you will stay involved in developing and implementing this Plan in order to make Long Beach a safer, healthier and more prosperous place to live for future generations.
