The National Climate Assessment reaches similar conclusions to a recently released report from an worldwide panel of distinguished scientists convened by the United Nations, which predicted that without greatly accelerating the reduction of greenhouse gases there is a strong risk that some of the more dire consequences of climate change could result as early as 2040.
The US National Climate Assessment lastv week warned climate change is set to inflict "substantial damage on US lives" and cause "substantial damages to the US economy" which could run into the billions of dollars.
