Fall 2009 - Climate Highlights from Around Maine: Maine’s Climate Future: An Initial Assessment

by Catherine Schmitt

The Climate Change Institute at the University of Maine gathered input from more than 75 scientists around the state to produce the first predictions of climate change in Maine and implications for Maine’s natural resources and related economy. Their report, Maine’s Climate Future, An Initial Assessment, was delivered to Maine’s Governor John Baldacci in February. The assessment of Maine’s future climate and effects on marine, freshwater, forest, agricultural, and indigenous resources sparked action by the state legislature to initiate a climate change adaptation planning process for the state, which will continue through 2010. Download the full report from the Climate Change Institute’s website.
