Washington, D.C. — Today, one week after the release of the National Climate Assessment, ClimateProgress released the culmination of their coverage of the national- and regional-level effects of climate change detailed in the report. From farmers in the Midwest, to native groups in Alaska, to oyster companies in the Pacific Northwest, ClimateProgress’ reporting includes reactions from people on the ground who are currently experiencing the impacts of climate change. ClimateProgress also spoke to various authors of the NCA and analyzed the coverage of the NCA on cable news.

“The National Climate Assessment is the definitive statement of current and future impacts of carbon pollution on the United States,” wrote Joe Romm, who is a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress Action Fund and founding editor of ClimateProgress. “And the picture it paints is stark: Inaction will devastate much of the arable land of the nation’s breadbasket—and ruin a livable climate for most Americans.”
