Description: The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has concluded, with 90% certainty, that human or “anthropogenic” activities (emissions of greenhouse gases, aerosols and pollution, landuse/ land-cover change) have altered global temperature patterns over the past 100-150 years (IPCC 2007a). Such temperature changes have a set of cascading, and sometimes amplifying, effects on the entire global climate system, including the water cycle, cryosphere, hurricane intensity, and sea level. This chapter develops a set of scenarios for exploring potential climate and resource effects futures in the Southern United States.
