Texas is getting hotter, drier, and stormier. We draw on the latest science to advocate for equitable and natural solutions that will better protect the people and places of Texas.

Texas is in the midst of an era of growing extremes. Droughts are becoming longer and more frequent. Summers are getting hotter, while winters are more punctuated by extreme weather events. Rainfall is declining and concentrating in more violent, brief storms. Meanwhile on the coast, sea level is rising, storm surge is growing, and land is subsiding.

It’s an era of extreme change. We help lawmakers confront and address this change through meaningful policy action. In addition, we work with local and regional leaders, helping them navigate options and access resources so they can help shape the future of their communities and ecosystems.
