Kansas: Economic Impact of Climate Change

During the recent meeting in New Orleans of the National Conference of State Legislatures, the Center for Integrative Environmental Research of the University of Maryland released a series of studies extending their earlier report, US Economic Impacts of Climate Change and the Costs of Inaction, to the state level. Kansas was included among the eight states for which an analysis was published, with estimated losses exceeding $1 billion for the Kansas economy.

A two page summary of the broad conclusions discussed in the state reports entitled Economic and Environmental Costs of Climate Change epitomized the conclusions drawn in the state-level reports. The state-level reports were also discussed in brief overview at Science Daily.

The full 20-page report for Kansas can be found at the CIER website under the title of Economic Impacts of Climate Change on Kansas
