Impact of Climate Change from The Union of Concerned Scientist
Global Warming Impacts
To realize the urgency of global warming, it’s important to understand the ways it affects us. Sea levels are rising and glaciers are melting; record high temperatures and severe rainstorms and droughts are becoming increasingly common.
To help understand the problem and find practical solutions, UCS scientists assess the effects of climate change both across the globe and in our own backyard.
In this section, explore the connections between the climate data we have and the changes we see around us—and those we expect to see in the future—from overall trends to specific regional impacts.
