National Climate Assessment
January 25, 2013 | U.S. Global Change Research Program
"Climate change is already affecting the American people. Certain types of weather events have become more frequent and/or intense, including heat waves, heavy downpours, and, in some regions, floods and droughts. Sea level is rising, oceans are becoming more acidic, and glaciers and arctic sea ice are melting. These changes are part of the pattern of global climate change, which is primarily driven by human activity." Quoted from the Executive Summary of the Federal Advisory Committee Draft Climate Assessment Report

Sea Level Rise and Small Pacific Islands
April 18, 2013 | USGS
"Dynamic modeling of sea-level rise, which takes storm wind and wave action into account, paints a much graver picture for some low-lying Pacific islands under climate-change scenarios than the passive computer modeling used in earlier research." Quote from the USGS press release.
