U.S Will be Seriously Affected By Climate Change

By Ben Cohen

A sobering report on the effects of global warming on the United States:

The Obama Administration on Tuesday released

a report showing climate disruption is already leaving deep imprints on

every sector of the environment and that the consequences of these

changes will grow steadily worse in coming decades.

The 196-page report crisscrosses the United States and finds that global warming has touched every corner: Heavier downpours, strengthened heat waves, altered river flows and extended growing seasons.

These changes, the report notes, will place increasing stress

on water, health, energy and transportation systems and have, in

several instances, already crossed tipping points to irreversible

change.
