The Nevada Climate Initiative Climate Working Group and University of Nevada Extension have collaborated to develop a short primer on climate change and how it affects our state. Drawn from the comprehensive information presented in the Nevada State Climate Strategy, this is an excellent resource that distills the best available science on climate change here in Nevada.

The Nevada State Climate Strategy was published in December, 2020 to provide an economy-wide roadmap of climate action necessary to achieve Nevada’s goals and capture the benefits of the clean energy revolution. For more information on the Strategy, please visit
