GLRPPR Sector Resource: Preparing for Climate Change in Illinois: An Overview of Anticipated Impacts

Title:
Preparing for Climate Change in Illinois: An Overview of Anticipated Impacts

Abstract:
In this issue overview, we explore problems that will likely face Illinois policymakers and voters in years to come.First, we look at the likely changes to Illinois' climate, and then explain some of the implications of these changes. In particular, we highlight the greater demand for electricity, increases in heat-related deaths and illnesses, higher cost of flood and crop insurance, changes in agricultural production patterns, and opportunities for investment in transportation and water resources infrastructure.
