Climate change is happening - now. Texas is already experiencing more climate disasters than any other state - from historic drought and raging wildfires to historic inland flooding and the devastating wind and rain from Hurricane Harvey. These events are costing us in lost lives, destroyed homes, business and infrastructure and lost economic opportunity. 

Learn what the science of climate change is telling us and what role the city can play in this urgent fight to preserve a livable climate.

Last year, a judge ruled that Volkswagen will pay $15 billion dollars in the U.S. settlement of its emissions cheating scandal. In Texas, $200 million has been set aside for environmental mitigation under the multibillion-dollar settlement. These funds have been designated for the specific purpose of cleaning up our air - and we want to ensure that these funds are used to help our communities breathe easier.
