Serious Threat Global Warming Poses to California
Researchers Warn of Serious Threat
Global Warming Poses to California

By Ioana Patringenaru | August 16, 2006

Sea levels and temperatures would rise. Beaches and water supplies would shrink. Wildfires could become more frequent. Global warming could have a devastating impact on California, according to scientific findings that Scripps Institution of Oceanography researchers and state officials discussed this month at UCSD.

The findings are based on 17 scientific studies that used different models to determine how global warming could impact the state. The studies were summarized in Our Changing Climate: Assessing the Risks to California, a report recently released by state officials. Scripps and UC Berkeley researchers worked with colleagues from other universities and public agencies, including the California Air Resources Board and the USDA Forest Service.

1. That's odd - the executive summary is larger than the final report?
The article links to the download page for the final report,
the Executive Summary is 3MB, the report itself is 1.9MB?


Download Executive Summary of Final Report, April 3, 2006. (Acrobat PDF, 20 pages, 3.0 megabytes)

Download Final Report, April 3, 2006. (Acrobat PDF, 110 pages, 1.9 megabytes)
