Introduction
2
The effects of climate change are far reaching and are just starting to affect us in a very personal and economic way. Climate and weather related disasters cost the United States an estimated $100B in 2012, much of it attributable to the increasing severity of hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, and droughts we're experiencing nation-wide. These data show how climate change is affecting us, how important it is to the average citizen, and what we're willing to do to curb climate change.
