Climate Change Impacts

Climate Change Impacts by State

This page contains a series of factsheets which provide an overview of climate impacts by U.S. state and territory. 

As our climate changes, every state will become warmer. Aside from rising temperatures, the impacts of climate change are likely to be very different from state to state. Increased rainfall intensity will cause more flooding in some states, while increasingly severe droughts may threaten water supplies in other states. Farms and forests will be less productive in some states, but warmer temperatures may extend growing seasons in others.
