A major new report has come out that documents, in detail, the changes that will come in the United States due to global warning within the next 25 to 35 years.
The upshot is:
1) The Northeast U.S. will have more than twice as many days above 95F as it currently does.Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) has already said the GOP will oppose any attempt to restrict greenhouse gases.
2) The Northeast will suffer the worst rise in ocean levels and flooding from storms. (NYC, Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware are going to see the worst.) This is because ocean currents push water against the Northeast (not California, not Mississippi, not North Carolina, etc.), and because the geography of the Northeast will tend to funnel water in (as it did during Hurricane Sandy).
3) In the Pacific Northwest, watch for an end to rain and massive forest fires. Seattlites, complain about the rain while you can. You won't have it for long...
4) The Midwest will see a lengthening of its currently short growing season by 50 percent. But it will also see many more multi-year extreme droughts.
5) The Deep South will become intolerably hot.
