March 18, 2019 - 7:12 pm

The Kansas City region could see severe impact from global warning, and a coalition of leaders from throughout the region is trying to address the issue proactively.

The Kansas City Star reports that after an international group of scientists issued a climate report in October, Shawnee, Kansas, Councilwoman Lindsey Constance teamed up with officials in Roeland Park, Kansas, for a December workshop.

The workshop transformed into the Metro KC Climate Action Coalition.

The Weather Channel has ranked Kansas City fifth of 25 U.S. cities most likely to be affected by climate change, potentially facing higher temperatures as well as both extreme drought and heavier rains.
