NCA

NCA Backgrounder and Talking Points

The Third National Climate Assessment (NCA) was released on May 6, 2014 by the White House. The assessment documents how climate change impacts regions and sectors across the United States, and how society is responding to climate change.

Systems

Infrastructure and Systems

The effects of sea level rise, more extreme storms, prolonged drought and severe flooding threaten infrastructure systems that provide essential services for society — from drinking and wastewater systems to the transportation that drives our economy and the energy systems that power the national grid.

Sports

Climate Change and Sports

As the world warms, one often overlooked issue is its effects on sports and recreation. While not as life-threatening as extreme weather or as costly as droughts, climate change’s impacts on sports is something that’s becoming increasingly common.

Extreme Heat

Extreme Heat

One of the clearest findings of climate science is that global warming amplifies the intensity, duration and frequency of extreme heat events.

Budget

The Carbon Budget

Following the publication of the latest findings by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), some commentators zeroed in on a short paragraph in the Summary for Policymakers. This brief section lays out a “carbon budget,” defined as the precise quantity of carbon dioxide that humans can emit and still limit warming to 2ºC above pre-industrial levels.
