A new report, “Risky
Business: The Economic Risks of Climate Change” summarizes findings of an
independent assessment of the impact of climate change at the county, state,
and regional level. Specifically, the
report shows projected average summer temperatures at the county level by 2100
and their key impacts in each of six regions within the continental U.S., as
well as Hawaii and Alaska.
The report provides
policymakers, communities, and businesses with information about the risks they
may face by pairing economic data with climate change projections. You can
download the report and learn more here.
