Focus on Impacts of Climate Change in Washington State
Acrobat PDF format (Number of pages: 2) (Publication Size: 145KB)
|Description||This focus sheet summarizes two separate studies released in February 2009 detailing the projected impacts of climate change on Washington’s environment and economy. The Climate Impacts Group (CIG) at the University of Washington and the Climate Leadership Initiative (CLI) at the University of Oregon produced these reports. Each shows that without additional action to reduce carbon emissions, the severity and duration of the impacts due to climate change will be profound and will negatively affect nearly every part of Washington’s economy.|
