Scientists have long warned of the dangers that a warming climate poses to our planet. This year alone, a United Nations report delivered a dire warning to countries to scale back greenhouse gas emissions before the effects of climate change become irreversible; and a federal climate report predicted the U.S. will warm at least 3 more degrees by unless fossil fuel use is curtailed.

    Implications for Emergency Management. The general comment from the emergency management community is that regardless of why the climate is changing, it is changing, and will affect how the community operates in the future. Research performed by the U.S. Global Change Research Program on the implications of climate.   For individual extreme weather events or other disasters it can be difficult to fully separate the effects of global warming from those of natural climate variability and other factors.
