The U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) is cleaning out its warehouses and needs your help!
Since 2007, the USGCRP has produced a series of 21 reports, collectively called the Synthesis and Assessment Products (SAPs). These reports cover a range of topics from impacts of climate on transportation systems, to emissions scenarios, and are useful resources for informing policy decisions and learning about the implications of climate change in the United States.
For a full list and descriptions, please see:
These bound copies will not be available for much longer, as the USGCRP is cleaning out its warehouse. If you would like to have a free copy of any, or all of these reports sent to a U.S. address, please order now, either through the link above, or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
Important New Report
Until recently the United States government had the reputation of resisting or trying more indirectly to refute the mounting scientific evidence on global climate change. Under the newly elected government of President Barak Obama, however, this circumstance changed. On 16 June 2009 the Obama administration released a major report entitled: Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States
which it called "...the most comprehensive and authoritative report of its kind." The report and all of the data behind it was made public through the United States Global Change Research Program (USGCRP),
and within 24 hours it was the subject of hundreds of news articles and commentaries throughout the world.
This report can serve as the starting point for citizens's groups around the country and across the world to begin to thing about the implications of climate change for their communities. Further, they can begin now to devise civic action plans that can assist their fellow citizens to learn about coming climate changes and devise effective public policy to meet the coming challenges in their particular region.
