Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States

Published Jun 16, 2009


The U.S. Global Change Research Program, an interagency research program comprised of 13 federal agencies, has released a comprehensive report about climate change in the United States and what it will mean for our future and way of life. The author team is comprised of 28 climate experts from universities and research institutions across the U.S. The report is the first nationwide snapshot of our vulnerability to climate change since 2001 and represents the best available climate science in the United States.

The Union of Concerned Scientists has combed through the report to produce one national and eight regional fact sheets based on findings explained throughout the report.
