 Impact of Climate Change on California

THREATS AND SOLUTIONS FROM THE DETERIORATING ARCTIC


The Arctic is close to a tipping point of no return warming twice as fast as all other places on Earth and forcing rapid disintegration of sea ice, land snow, and rapid melting of the permafrost: there is the potential of releasing more greenhouse gases from the Arctic permafrost than already emitted since the industrial revolution.  We propose that the US take leadership and establish a new Research and Development initiative to begin restoring the Arctic to its historic state.

EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON SOUTH ASIA: A THREAT TO NATIONAL AND GLOBAL SECURITY


South Asia (India, Pakistan and Bangladesh) is one of the most critical hot spots in the world as being highly impacted by climate change. Migration, especially from the coastal, and delta river basins and surrounding areas, would be of major concern with millions from Pakistan and Bangladesh migrating inland and also crossing or attempting to cross into India.

Earth Science Missions: What They Measure, How They Apply to the Real World, Why They Must be Funded


Data from NOAA and NASA instruments document what the weather and climate are actually doing around the globe. These data along with data from other instruments can then be used to validate near term weather predictions, future predictions of tomorrow’s weather (e.g. hurricane tracks in the Western Atlantic and monsoon tracking in South Asia), and validate long term climate models to predict future climate conditions.

Response to Terminate 2021 Funding for NOAA & NASA Climate Related Projects, Satellites, Instruments


The President’s budget proposes to terminate or reduce in scope 30 NOAA and 3 NASA projects that are related to climate change mitigation, adaptation and research, extreme weather warning systems, resources and facilities for climate information, and climate gathering instruments and satellites. This action places a severe risk to the security of this nation by impacting our ability to gather and monitor climate related parameters which will affect our military, infrastructure, areas of commerce, and the ability to feed this nation.

Climate Change and California


Impacts to California by 2100: 

· Projected temperature rise: ~ 10 - 15°F 

· Projected sea level rise with major storms: ~ 9 ft 

· Increase risk of drought impacting food supply, forests, and reliable water supply 

· Increase severity and frequency of Atmospheric River Storms 

· Drastic change in ecological habitats effects forests, agriculture, estuaries, etc. 

· Loss of the Sierra snowpack from rising temperatures - impacting water supplies

· More frequent and intense wildfires, floods, mudslides 

· Impact on public health: vector-borne diseases of man and livestock

· Projected economic impacts to many sectors (agriculture, recreation, etc.) and infrastructure
