America's Climate Choices: Adapting to the Impacts of Climate ChangeVideo
Across the United States, the impacts of climate change are already in evidence and projected future impacts will have significant consequences. The range of possible future climate conditions demands a new paradigm for managing and protecting our people, resources, and infrastructure.

The report calls for a national adaptation strategy to support and coordinate a decentralized network of adaptation efforts.
