Understanding Climate Change
Roll your cursor over any region to view potential impacts | View text version
This interactive map of potential
impacts of climate change is based on a region-by-region analysis by
IPCC Working Group II. A more complete description of these and other
regional impacts can be found in the April 6, 2007, Summary
for Policymakers from Working Group II. The projected impacts described
here are considered "likely" by the IPCC unless otherwise stated.
It is important to note that some impacts are due to climate change intersecting
with other stressors, such as population growth, political and socioeconomic
conditions, and the like, as described in the Working Group II Summary
for Policymakers. (©UCAR. News media terms
