Global warming was supposed to be a threat to our grandchildren. Now the science tells us it is underway and has been for decades--while we burned increasing quantities of fossil fuel. It is changing our world in many ways, and unless we act now, catastrophe lies ahead, if not for us, then surely for our children's generation. It isn't only about our grandchildren anymore.
A new report has been published about the impact of global warming on the United States and the probable impacts by 2050 and 2100 under two scenarios of emissions levels. This report explains what is happening region by region, in details everyone can understand. You can access this information at www.globalchange.gov. At this site you may directly view information in the report, print specific pages of the report, or download the entire report as a pdf file.
Under "Resources" you will find a photo gallery that you may download and use in your environmental campaign work. We like this image of earth, a reminder of what we stand to lose if we are unable to make the necessary changes in energy, natural resources, and pollution.
