As concentrations of greenhouse gases and heat-trapping particles increase in the atmosphere, it is becoming ever more urgent to understand and prepare for the resulting changes in climate. These changes include not only temperature increases but also shifts in precipitation patterns, storm tracks, and other parameters. Climate change affects human health, water and energy supplies, food production, coastal communities, ecosystems, and many other aspects of society and the environment. This book presents an overview of the national strategy and progress that the federal government is taking in adapting to climate change with a focus on the progress report of the Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force.
