Responding to Climate Change

January 14, 2013 1055

A federal report released Friday warns that climate change will impact the everyday lives of Americans in coming decades, with extreme weather and climate events already taking their toll. The report, which can be downloaded here, is open for public comment starting today and scheduled to be finalized in March 2014, according to the Washington Post:

In a joint blog post Friday, White House science adviser John P. Holdren and Jane Lubchenco, head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, wrote that it is aimed at Americans “who need information about climate change in order to thrive — from farmers deciding which crops to grow, to city planners deciding the diameter of new storm sewers they are replacing, to electric utilities and regulators pondering how to protect the power grid.”
