About this product
- DescriptionThe impact of climate change on seven regions of the United States is studied in this new and accessible collection. The study examines how the different regions of the United States may be affected by climate change. In particular, the study explores whether warming would be beneficial to the rthern (colder) regions but harmful to the ecomies of the southern (warmer) regions. The study examines important sectors of the US ecomy that are likely to be affected by climate change. It examines agriculture, forestry, water resources, energy, and coastal resources. Ecomic models are used to examine each sector and there is a separate chapter for each sector. Because the study focuses on including efficient adaptation responses, the special role of adaptation is discussed in detail. The book concludes with a discussion of the impacts across the country and in each region. Any reader interested in climate change and its impacts will find this book of detailed results enlightening. The book is especially useful for people interested in studying impact methodologies.
