Climate Assessments

The Climate CIRCulator feeds our team’s larger efforts to inform our fellow Pacific Northwest residents about the science, impacts, and hazards associated with climate change. Roughly every two to three years we compile this work into a climate assessment.

Think of climate assessments as the mile-high view. As their name implies, climate assessments assess. They aggregate, weigh, and judge. They gather the myriad climate reports and studies available, forming them into a whole that helps us glimpse the many ways climate change is likely to impact our lives.

Below are climate assessments covering the Pacific Northwest and the nation that our team members have worked on.
