Chicago, normally known for its brutally cold winters, is preparing itself for wetter, hotter days - the results of climate change.

The Chicago Climate Action Plan is this city’s way to ease the impact of climate change. The plan includes basic ideas like introducing bike lanes to the more innovative like rooftop gardens.

Those behind the plan believe the city must take action now so Chicago will continue to be a comfortable place to live.

    Chicago is one of the many global cities who are members of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40)
    The current Chair, New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, along with the ten‐member Steering Committee of other C40 mayors, including Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, are looking for leadership. Taking strong action now will ensure that your city will remain resilient against not only Climate change, but also any other "future shock" that may occur. These actions are a way to "future proof" our cities and their built fabric in the face of stresses from both climate change and peak oil.
