Watch Climate Change, Water & Nature's Solutions
"The single biggest near term issue regarding climate is water," said Lynn Scarlett, The Nature Conservancy's Global Managing Director of Public Policy. She spoke to over 150 League members from across the country in Washington D.C. on June 18, 2016. Learn about the regional problems caused or exacerbated by climate change in this video, and be inspired by the collaborative solutions she presents.
