Climate Change

Earth's climate is undergoing a period of accelerated warming. Unlike prior instances of climate change that were driven by natural factors, present warming is caused by human activities, particularly the burning of fossil fuels. Cities play a vital role in limiting additional warming through policies and practices to accelerate the transition to clean energy. Cities are also integral to helping communities and infrastructure adapt to the changing climate. The City of Boynton Beach is dedicated to implementing effective, efficient, and innovative strategies informed by recent developments in sustainability and climate resilience.
