The U.S. faces some pressing challenges

2016 was the hottest year on record, as was 2015

The U.S. recycles less than 20% of its waste

Low-income families spend about 10% of their earnings on energy

Poor food choices are leading to higher childhood obesity

How are we helping to solve this problem?
