The Northeast Climate Impacts Assessment

The Northeast Climate Impacts Assessment (NECIA) is a collaborative effort between the Union of Concerned Scientists and a team of independent experts using state-of-the-art tools to assess how global warming will affect the northeastern United States following two different paths: a higher-emissions path with continued rapid growth in global warming pollution, and a lower-emissions path with greatly reduced heat-trapping emissions.
The goal of the assessment is to provide opinion leaders, policy makers, and the public with the best available science as we make informed choices about reducing our heat-trapping emissions and managing the changes we cannot avoid.
