About this book

This assessment has involved thousands of Americans in an ongoing national dialogue about climate change and its impacts. The report identifies key climatic vulnerabilities of particular regions and sectors in the context of other changes in the nation's environment, resources, and economy. It also explores ways Americans can adapt to an uncertain and continuously changing climate.

'... it is essential reading for all serious workers in the climatic change impact field.' J. G. Lockwood, International Journal of Climatology '... this is a required read for the climate change crew.' Susan M. Capalbo, Great Plains Research
