EPA EFFECTS REPORT DUE SOON


Item #d89jan4

The draft of a comprehensive study of the effects of global climate change in the United States, coordinated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), was reviewed by independent scientists in November 1988, underwent interagency review in December, and will be delivered to Congress soon. (See Global Climate Change Digest, NEWS, Nov. 1988.) Based on general circulation model results, the study predicts substantial effects of global warming on coastal wetlands, agriculture, and forests and other natural ecosystems. Extensive excerpts of the draft executive summary were printed in JAPCA, 1554-1572, Dec. 1988. Comments of Science Advisory Board members following its November review are covered in Air/Water Pollut. Rep., p. 395, Nov. 21, and Environ. Rptr. Curr. Develop., p. 1569, Dec. 2.
