New Reports on Climate Impacts in U.S. States

The University of Maryland's Center for Integrative Environmental Research has released a series of reports outlining potential economic impacts of climate change to several U.S. states. The titles are a bit of a misnomer as the reports largely detail the size of climate-exposed economic sectors and qualitatively identify whether such sectors will be positively or negatively harmed. Some indicative projections of economic impacts arising from climate change are offered, but generally these reports don't provide comprehensive estimates of climate costs that could be used, say, for cost/benefit analysis of different climate policies.
