California Climate Action Team Biennial Report - 2009 CAT Report

April 2010

In June 2005, Executive Order S-05-05 was signed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger which mandated the preparation of biennial science assessment reports on climate change impacts and adaptation options for California. The first Climate Action Team (CAT) Assessment Report was produced in March 2006. This 2009 assessment expands on the policy-oriented 2006 assessment, and provides new information and scientific findings including: 1) the development of new climate and sea-level projections using new information and tools that have become available in the last two years; and 2) an evaluation of climate change within the context of broader social changes, such as land-use changes and demographic shifts.

The Impacts of Sea-Level Rise on the California Coast

May 2009

Provided by the California Energy Commission's Climate Change Center, this study includes a detailed analysis of California's infrastructure, property, and current population at risk from projected sea-level rise, as well as the cost of building structural measures to reduce that risk. Specifically, it identifies the risks of flooding and erosion to specific populations, roads, railways, power plants, water treatment plants, ports and airports, emergency and healthcare facilities, wetlands, coastal and San Francisco Bay properties, and groundwater aquifers.

Transportation Planning, Climate Change, and Decision making Under Uncertainty

2008

This report discusses ways that the uncertainty created by climate change and its impacts can be incorporated into long-range transportation planning. The paper examines how departments of transportation (DOTs) forecast travel demand for planning purposes, and it suggests several frameworks (i.e. scenario planning and adaptive management) that can be used to incorporate uncertain climate change impacts into these planning processes.
