Cooper administration releases another new climate report
Report lays out expected impacts from climate change and a road map for response.Posted — Updated
The report lays out much of the latest science and predictions on sea level rise, increased flooding and other expected long-term impacts from average temperature increases.
The plan includes recommendations, but is largely a roadmap for state agencies and other entities, telling them what to expect and suggesting how to adapt.
The department described it as "a framework to guide state action, engage policy-makers and stakeholders, and facilitate collaboration across the state and focus the state’s attention on climate resilience actions and address underlying stressors such as the changing climate, aging infrastructure, socio-economic disparities, and competing development priorities."
