Study Executive Summary: Scientists from around the world agree that climate change is real and that the main cause of rising temperatures over the past century has been human activity. Connecticut's environment, public health and economy are likely to suffer significant adverse effects from climate change. This summary describes the findings of an in-depth report on the impacts of climate change on Connecticut, in which we present data that shows Connecticut is growing warmer.We use climate models to project future accelerated temperature rise, sea-level change, and outline the impacts to health, ecosystems and the economy. Climate change presents a serious challenge for Connecticut, but forward-thinking policies and existing technology can significantly reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and prevent risking the health and safety of our people and our environment.
