Texas is vulnerable to warming #climate « GCC News Brief

Texas is vulnerable to warming #climate « GCC News Brief: "The changes in temperature and precipitation, along with rising sea levels, will leave no part of Texas unchanged. This includes both the natural landscape and the cities, the wildlife and important economic sectors, like agriculture. While climate change may be good for some parts of the globe (e.g., Siberia, northern Canada), Texas is most definitely not one of them. Rather, the vulnerability of Texas is more akin to that of the low-lying island states of the Pacific that are going to be inundated by sea-level rise over the coming century.
This makes the refusal of our leaders in Austin to take action on climate change that much more unfortunate."
