Climate Change Impacts on the United States - Foundation Report: The Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Climate Change Impacts on the United States is part of a national process of research analysis and dialogue about the coming changes in climate, their impacts, and what Americans can do to adapt to an uncertain and continuously changing climate. The report was called for by a 1990 law and was written by the National Assessment Synthesis Team (NAST), a committee of experts drawn from governments, universities, industry, and non-governmental organizations. The NAST produced two documents: the longer Foundation Report and the Overview Report, which is significantly more accessible and shorter. The two reports cover all areas of the United States and are peer-reviewed documents that synthesize results from studies. They identify key climatic vulnerabilities of particular regions and sectors in the context of other changes in the nation's environment, resources, and economy.

Book News Annotation:

This study describes current scientific understanding of the coming changes in climate, their impacts, and what people can do to adapt to the changing climate. Key findings for the next century include the likely disappearance of the alpine meadows of the Rocky Mountains, snowpack changes in the Pacific Northwest, long-term shifts in forest species due to temperature increases, and infrastructure damage due to rising sea levels. Information is supplemented with numerous b&w maps, tables, diagrams, and photos. A companion overview report aimed at general readers and students is also available. This work lacks a subject index.
