  Title Projected Economic Effect of Climate Change on Counties in the United States Type Miscellaneous
  Year 2017 Publication Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages  
  Keywords Climate change; Economic damage; Economic effect; United States; Counties  
  Abstract This graphic represents the projected economic effects of climate change on counties in the United States by 2080-2099. Areas in shades of red are counties that will lose a percentage of their Gross Domestic Product (GDP), while areas in shades of green are counties that may actually increase their GDP.

  Title Graph of Past and Projected Changes of Sea Level Type Miscellaneous
  Year 2013 Publication Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages  
  Keywords Climate change; Sea level rise  
  Abstract The graph shows how sea levels will change for four different pathways for human development and greenhouse gas pollution. The green, yellow and orange lines correspond to scenarios where it takes 10, 30, or 70 years before emissions are stabilized. The red line can be considered to represent business as usual where greenhouse gas emissions are increasing over time.

  Title Estimated, observed, and possible future amounts of global sea level rise from 1800 to 2100, relative to the year 2000. Type Miscellaneous
  Year 2013 Publication Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages  
  Keywords Climate change; Sea level rise  
  Abstract Estimated, observed, and possible future amounts of global sea level rise from 1800 to 2100, relative to the year 2000. Estimates from proxy data (for example, based on sediment records) are shown in red (1800-1890, pink band shows uncertainty), tide gauge data are shown in blue for 1880-2009, and satellite observations are shown in green from 1993 to 2012. The future scenarios range from 0.66 feet to 6.6 feet in 2100. These scenarios are not based on climate model simulations, but rather reflect the range of possible scenarios based on other scientific studies. The orange line at right shows the currently projected range of sea level rise of 1 to 4 feet by 2100, which falls within the larger risk-based scenario range. The large projected range reflects uncertainty about how glaciers and ice sheets will react to the warming ocean, the warming atmosphere, and changing winds and currents. As seen in the observations, there are year-to-year variations in the trend. (Figure source: Adapted from Parris et al. 2012 with input from NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory).
