Pennsylvania’s Climate Change Future: Read The Missing Report
A pair of legally-mandated reports outlining how climate change will affect Pennsylvania are currently a year overdue.
The state’s Climate Change Act required the publication of both reports in 2009, followed by an update every three years.
Both documents were due last year, but they’re still under review, and the state Department of Environmental Protection won’t say when they will be released.
StateImpact Pennsylvania has obtained one of the original draft reports. It was written by a team of scientists from Penn State University and submitted to the DEP in early 2012.
