    The Climate In 2080 – 540 City Projections In the U.S. and Canada

    A new study predicts how much warmer, wetter and dryer 540 cities in the U.S. and Canada will be by 2080 within 2 different emissions scenarios. A clickable map (direct link below), provides individual projections for each city. In some cities, the temperature rise may exceed 10°C (Salt Lake City), precipitation may increase upwards of 140% (Dallas Fort Worth).

    What Could This Mean for the Future?
    Many cities may experience a future climate unlike anything present in North America today, especially if rates of greenhouse gas emissions are not reduced.

    There is the possibility of increased variability of potentially problematic organisms, including weeds, insect pests, and diseases that could heavily impact human health, wildlife, and agriculture.

    Infrastructure stability may be at greater risk, and whether organisms could adapt and survive such drastic changes within a relatively short period of time is a cause for major concern and study.

    Lifestyle, travel, water availability, storm and natural disaster response along with many other societal conditions are likely to be seriously altered, the severity dependent upon the level of warming and whether it could or would be abated.
