The state has released a peer-reviewed report on the anticipated near-term and long-term impacts of climate change, and it makes for a good read. In short, it will impact coastlines, fire seasons, levees, power production, and the water supply just for starters, and the impacts are already being felt. The report itself is a surprisingly easy read. We’re wrestling with these issues in Sunnyvale, both directly (planning for flooding in the northern part of the city) and indirectly (coping with water supply issues). I encourage you to check it out.
