Climate impacts are everywhere and climate impacts storytelling is improving. What does it come down to? Experts say that a big element is humanizing and localizing the story.

ImpactsUS gives a platform for local storytelling about climate impacts, grounded in the latest science. If you’re a reporter, producer, or content creator looking for help telling climate impacts stories–or have published stories you’d like to share–please reach out!

Here are examples of some of the best recent coverage of climate impacts in the states where we work.
