[Excerpt] The following report examines the climate crisis in Rhode Island and outlines a set of high-impact climate jobs recommendations designed to maximize the state's actions to do three things: 1) Create thousands of good-paying, high-quality jobs that help reverse inequality, 2) Drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions to avoid the worst impacts of climate change and meet the state's Act on Climate targets, and 3) Invest in infrastructure that will make Rhode Island communities healthier, more resilient and more equitable.
