Focus on Impacts of Climate Change in Washington State

The Climate Impacts Group (CIG) at the University of Washington and the Climate Leadership Initiative (CLI) (formerly at the University of Oregon) developed this focus sheet which summarizes two separate studies released in February 2009, detailing the projected impacts of climate change on Washington's environment and economy. Both reports demonstrate 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.
