"The mission of the Risky Business Project is to quantify the economic risks to the U.S. from unmitigated climate change. This follow-up report focuses on the Southeast and Texas and offers a first step toward defining the range of potential economic consequences to this specific region if we continue on our current greenhouse gas emissions pathway. Our research combines state-of-the-art climate science projections through the year 2100 (and beyond in some cases) with empirically derived estimates of the impact of projected changes in temperature and precipitation on the... read more

This is the Forest Guild's policy statement on climate change and forests.
Forests have an effect on, and are influenced by, changing levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses (GHG) in Earth’s atmosphere and the resulting changes in climatic conditions. This policy statement outlines management that enhances forests’ ability to adapt to climate change and mitigate the effects of climate change through increased carbon sequestration and storage or forest restoration activities that reduce risk of high-severity fires. The first priority is to protect and prevent the conversion and deforestation of forestland. The second... read more
