Abstract

Human-caused climate change is not some future hypothetical event, affecting only remote islands and Arctic villages. It is happening here and now, in our own state. The impacts of 21st-century climate change will be experienced by all Californians and are likely to be pervasive, affecting every sector of California's economy.
