"...a required read for the climate change crew." Great Plains Research

Book Description

The National Assessment of Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change is a landmark project in the ongoing effort to understand what climate change means for the U.S. The report identifies key climatic vulnerabilities of particular regions and sectors in the context of other changes in the nation's environment, resources, and economy. It also explores ways Americans can adapt to an uncertain and continuously changing climate.

This volume was not well put together, not well edited, not well integrated. I am not a global warming skeptic, but the logic of this analysis is very poor - brainstorming lists of possible effects rather than thoughtful scientific analysis.

This book is an excellent choice if you would like to read straight forward and well researched information about climate change. It is well written and easy to read. The graphics are some of the most effective that I have seen in a scientific text!

I am currently a student and found it very interesting. It is readable from the high school level and up. I recommend it for anyone who is interested in climate change impacts on the US and wants a book that is clear and concise and user friendly. The book covers different geographical regions of the country and different topics like agriculture. I found the sections on New England, Alaska, Water, Health, and Forests to be particularly interesting. This book is an overview document and the citations for the book are contained in Climate Change Impacts on the United States Foundation book which is a more technical and scientifically detailed document that supports this text. Overall, the book really allowed me to examine potential impacts and to think about what the implications of those impacts may be.

This was a so-so assessment of climate change. It had some very serious methodological problems (the scenarios) and some editorial problems but it was a starting point.
