Why Should We Adapt?
Preparing for a Changing World
As an inland city, San Antonio will not experience one of the most visible climate change impacts: sea level rise. However, that doesn’t mean that the city is immune to climate change. By the end of this century, we expect San Antonio to be hotter and drier, facing challenges such as water shortages, spiking energy costs, and increased risk for wildfires.
To manage these challenges, it is essential that we have a plan in place that both acknowledges our existing vulnerabilities and identifies high-impact opportunities for improving our resilience.
This chart shows some of the changes we expect to see by the end of the century, depending on how effectively we fight to protect our climate.
