GLRPPR Sector Resource: Risky Business: The Economic Risks of Climate Change in the United States

Title:
Risky Business: The Economic Risks of Climate Change in the United States

Abstract:
The Risky Business Project is designed to apply risk assessment to the critical issue of climate change, and to take a sober, fact-based look at the potential risks facing specific sectors and regions of the national economy. As in a classic business risk assessment, we analyzed not only the most likely scenarios, but also the scenarios that, while less likely, could have more significant impacts.
