Climate change is affecting every part of the United States and every sector of the economy, including health, energy, financial markets, agriculture, and water. To understand future climate risks and impacts—and ultimately adapt to them—it’s critical to use the latest climate science.

In this visually engaging report, we use ICF’s cutting-edge climate risk analytics platform, ClimateSight, to crunch new internationally recognized climate data. We project warmer and wetter extreme weather in the future across the continental United States. In a worst-case scenario, Americans could experience on average up to 53 days with temperatures above 95° F and 3.5 inches of precipitation during extreme three-day precipitation events by midcentury.

Read this report to learn:
  • About new internationally recognized climate projections for extreme heat and precipitation.
  • The differences between the standard climate projections and the new climate projections.
  • How mapping climate risks across the U.S. can help us understand specific risks to each region.
  • How cutting-edge climate tech can make projections of local climate risks—and help communities adapt to those risks.
