Impacts and Adaptation in Wisconsin

While the State of Wisconsin might currently be embroiled in a debate over the future of collective bargaining, earlier this year, the state produced a new report on the impacts of climate change and possible adaptation responses. The report, Wisconsin's Changing Climate: Impacts and Adaptation, summarizes what is known about potential impacts to a range of key sectors (water resources, biodiversity, agriculture, coasts, and "people and their environment"). When it comes to adaptation, the report largely discusses broad principles (such as the pursuit of 'no regrets' strategies) and generic categories of adaptive responses. Nevertheless, the report appears to be just the opening salvo in what will be a series of reports by the Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts.
