Climate Change Quantified For the US

The US government issued a report on the measured and projected effects of climate change in the United States- what we see, what we will see, and suggestions for how the worst impacts may be avoided or mitigated.  White House press release here, full report and summaries here.

It must be noted that this report has been compiled over a year and a half- that means that the Bush Administration was in charge during most of the research.  However, the report observations and conclusions vary from a report on a similar subject issued last year, during the that (adjectives, gerunds, and various expletives deleted to maintain semblance of journalistic objectivity) administration.  As reported by the HuffPo,

The new report differs from a similar draft issued with little fanfare or context by George W. Bush’s administration last year. It is paradoxically more dire about what’s happening and more optimistic about what can be done.

Might this report be helpful in strengthening the current climate change bill headed to Congress?  Resigned Baritone: Only Time Will Tell.
