      According to assessments by the National Research Council (NRC) and the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP), U.S. energy infrastructure is increasingly vulnerable to a range of climate change impacts--particularly infrastructure in areas prone to severe weather and water shortages. Climate changes are projected to affect infrastructure throughout all major stages of the . usgcrp-ocpfy, Our Changing Planet: The U.S. Global Change Research Program for Fiscal Year This FY edition of Our Changing Planet includes an overview of the USGCRP research enterprise and recent highlights that demonstrate how the Program is fulfilling its – Strategic Plan.

Introduction: In order to improve understanding of the national-scale consequences of global climate change, the Office of Science and Technology Policy and the US Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) are sponsoring a series of regional workshops. The purpose of these workshops is to examine the vulnerabilities of various regions of the United States to climate variability and climate change and to aggregate information across regions.

First National Climate Assessment – In FebruaryUSGCRP and the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) initiated a series of Regional Climate Change Workshops with the goal of examining the vulnerabilities of U.S.

regions to climate variability and change. Each workshop was sponsored by one or more government agencies, and was carried out by coordinators from local.

Global change encompasses a wide range of planetary- and regional-scale changes in the resource and land use, urbanization, economic development, and U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) the Nation and the world with the scienprovides knowledge necessary for tific global change on the Arctic region and effects on global.

Climate change is widely acknowledged to be having a profound effect on the biosphere with many and diverse impacts on global resources.

Mountain ecosystems in the western U.S. and the Northern Rockies in particular are highly sensitive to climate change. The United States Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) coordinates and integrates federal research on changes in the global environment and their implications for program began as a presidential initiative in and was codified by Congress through the Global Change Research Act of (P.L.

), which called for "a comprehensive and integrated United States research. Climate change presents the single biggest threat to sustainable development everywhere and its widespread, unprecedented impacts disproportionately burden the poorest and most vulnerable.

Urgent action to halt climate change and deal with its impacts is integral to successfully achieving all Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This website is intended to make the National Climate Assessment (“Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States”) more accessible to a variety of interested readers.

Several features of this site are prototyping greater traceability of source material, better searchability of the assessment as a whole and enhanced access to.

The case for action is clear – climate change has begun to impact all regions of the world and sectors of society, threatening global development and undermining the foundation of the global economy.

Yet addressing the climate challenge also is opening up new opportunities for societies to grow and prosper. Through Caring for Climate, the UN. The impacts of climate change on food production, prices, and trade for the United States and globally have been widely examined, including in the recent report “Climate Change, Global Food Security, and the U.S.

Food System.” 7 An overall finding of that report was that “climate change is very likely to affect global, regional, and local. Projected Change in North American Precipitation by The maps show projected future changes in precipitation relative to the recent past as simulated by 15 climate models.

The simulations are for late this century, under a higher emissions scenario.3 For example, in the spring, climate models agree that northern areas are likely to get wetter, and southern areas drier. This project is being undertaken as a joint effort between the national and eight regional Climate Adaptation Science Centers and the National Wildlife Health Center (NWHC).

“The impacts of climate change and the transmission of pathogens do not adhere to state or regional boundaries,” said Erik Hofmeister, Research Virologist with the NWHC. The BEES report (Staudinger et al.

) was produced in response to a request for information from the NCA, under the auspices of the US Global Change Research Program (USGCRP). The US Global Change Research Act requires that the USGCRP conduct an assessment of the impacts of climate change on the nation's resources no less than every 4.

On these pages you will find information about and have access to a suite of scenarios produced as input to the U.S. National Climate Assessment. There are documents, graphics, references to data sets, and other resources that have been prepared to depict a range of plausible future conditions against which risks, vulnerability, and.
