The recently released National Climate Assessment brings the impacts of climate change to each individual state in the United States.

“Climate change, once considered an issue for a distant future, has moved firmly into the present,” the report said. “Corn producers in Iowa, oyster growers in Washington state and maple syrup producers in Vermont are all observing climate-related changes that are outside of recent experience.”

The Guardian provided a full explanation of the report here.
