Abstract

This series of fact sheets was prepared for King County (Washington)’s October 27, 2005 climate change meeting titled “The Future Ain’t What It Used to Be: Planning for Climate Disruption”. The fact sheets provide a summary of projected climate change impacts on hydropower, municipal and industrial water supply, stormwater management and floods, forests, fish, agriculture, and coasts. Case studies and possible strategies for adapting to climate change are also highlighted.

Additional information on the meeting, including other materials developed by the Climate Impacts Group for the climate change conference, is available here.
