Climate Change Impacts Report
Today the U.S. Global Change Research Program released a report on climate change impacts in the United States. This is the most comprehensive report on U.S impacts and is broken out by region and sector. The report is available at www.globalchange.gov/usimpacts.
At the White House briefing today, NOAA Administrator Dr. Jane Lubchenco said this report "…demonstrates that climate change is happening now, it’s happening in our own back yard, and it’s affecting the things we care about."
This is why it’s’ important to act now to pass the American Clean Energy and Security Act, which has more than 30 tools to confront the climate crisis and reduce global warming.
