Effects of Global Warming in Upstate New York
Summer in Upstate New York could feel like the typical summer in South Carolina or Georgia by the end of the century unless we take action to reduce heat-trapping emissions today.
Lower-emissions scenarios represent a shift away from fossil fuels in favor of clean energy technologies, causing heat-trapping emissions to decline by mid-century.
Higher-emissions scenarios represent continued heavy reliance on fossils fuels, causing heat-trapping emissions to rise rapidly over the century.
