Severe storms. Heat waves. Rising seas. New England is already seeing the impacts of climate change, and scientists project they will become more severe and deadly, shaping how we live and work in the northeastern U.S.

Ahead of Inauguration Day, the New England News Collaborative and America Amplified will look at the impact of climate change on our region, how the incoming Biden administration could affect climate action, and what that would mean for our future.

As part of the show, we want to hear from you:

  • How has climate change affected your life?
  • Who should lead the response to climate change, and what should they focus on?
