At this talk, we will review the results of how Chicago's climate change impacts research. We will detail what we can do right now to reduce our greenhouse gas emission while preparing for climate changes that cannot be avoided. In particular, we will highlight strategies for reducing the urban heat island and managing storm water onsite to adapt to climate change while decreasing the carbon footprint of our outdoor spaces through sustainable gardening choices.

We will also touch upon individual actions that can both save money and decrease greenhouse gas emissions, mitigating climate change. Our discussion will be in the context of Chicago's greenhouse gas reduction goals and will highlight mitigation and adaptation actions beyond the household level.
