Climate Change Adaptation Plan of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

Cory Abrahams (Editor)

Series: Climate Change and its Causes, Effects and Prediction
BISAC: SCI092000

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is committed to identifying and responding to the challenges that a changing climate poses to human health and the environment. Scientific evidence demonstrates that the climate is changing at an increasingly rapid rate, outside the range to which society has adapted in the past.

These changes can pose significant challenges to the EPA’s ability to fulfill its mission. The EPA must adapt to climate change if it is to continue fulfilling its statutory, regulatory and programmatic requirements. The Agency is therefore anticipating and planning for future changes in climate to ensure it continues to fulfill its mission of protecting human health and the environment even as the climate changes. This book discusses the EPA’s climate change adaptation plan, and discusses the impacts of climate change on the United States.
