Climate change and its impacts are becoming apparent now throughout the United States and are projected to increase in the future. This report, which contains a compilation of seven research studies by major state universities around the country finds that nine states across the U.S. are facing growing economic harm from climate change impacts. 

The studies, which examine projected economic impacts on specific local economic sectors, show that climate change is expected to prove disruptive to a broad cross section of the economy in all regions of the country. Researchers investigated climate change implications on water, coasts, and forests and detailed the implications of these impacts on agriculture, real estate, public infrastructure, and tourism.
