Experts discuss how climate change is affecting New Jersey

You may not be able to feel it, but environmental experts say it’s only a matter of time before you’ll see how climate change is impacting the state.

Leading experts from around the world gathered to discuss various ways to combat climate change at Monmouth University’s Climate Conference. One expert, Dr. Julia Puaschunder, says if we continue at the rate we’re going, we’ll have to start thinking about where to put people who live in an area that’s sinking.

The impacts of climate change aren’t just a threat to our environment. Environmental experts say it’s an even bigger threat to health. Experts say in order to hold people accountable for their actions, more laws need to be put in place so that our water remains clean and safe.
