The Status of the Coral Reef Ecosystems of Guam

December 2008

This report provides an assessment of the status of the coral reef ecosystems of Guam between 2004 and 2007. The findings of various monitoring activities, assessments, and stand-alone investigations conducted by local and federal agencies, educational/research institutions, and government contractors since 2004 were synthesized to obtain an updated, holistic view of the status of Guam’s reefs. Climate change is addressed as a significant factor in the decline of the coral reef in Guam.

Maine's Climate Future: An Initial Assessment

April 2009

In late 2007, then Governor Baldacci asked the University of Maine and its Climate Change Institute to lead a preliminary analysis of the effects of climate change in Maine during the 21st century. This report from the analysis considers past climate change, recent evidence of accelerated rates of change, and the implications of continued climate change in Maine as a result of greenhouse gas emissions and their associated pollutants. The assessment highlights some of the critical climate impacts on various ecosystems and economic sectors in Maine, with the intention to help frame the policy and management discussions on adaptation that are needed, while emphasizing new opportunities that exist for the state.

Washington Climate Change Impacts Assessment: Evaluating Washington's Future in a Changing Climate

2009

This is the full assessment report detailing the findings of the Climate Impacts Group's climate change impact assessment of Washington. The Washington Climate Change Impacts Assessment (WACCIA) involved developing updated climate change scenarios for the state and using these scenarios to assess the impacts of climate change on the following sectors: agriculture, coasts, energy, forests, human health, hydrology and water resources, salmon, and urban stormwater infrastructure. A chapter is dedicated to regional climate modeling.

Florida's Energy and Climate Change Action Plan

October 15, 2008

This action plan was developed by the Governor's Action Team on Energy and Climate Change in October 2008. The plan contains 50 separate policy recommendations for mitigation and adaptation, and is part of the Phase 2 deliverables required under Executive Order 07-128. Chapter 8 of the plan provides an overview of current and projected impacts, as well as a planning framework for adaptation developed by the Adaptation Technical Working Group (TWG). The chapter also recommends early action items for policymakers to consider in the following areas: Research, Comprehensive Planning, Protection of Ecosystems and Biodiversity, Water Resources Management, Built Environment, Infrastructure and Community Protection, and Public Education and Outreach.

The Impact of Climate Change on California's Ecosystem Services

March 2009

Climate change impacts on the natural provision of biodiversity and four key ecosystem services in California (carbon sequestration, forage production, water for instream flows for salmon, and snow recreation), and the resulting change in market and non. market values of each service, are presented in this report.   Specifically, the study considers the effect of climate change on the social cost and the market value of carbon sequestration, the profits associated with the production of natural forage, and the consumer surplus of skiing and salmon fishing.
