Study: Climate change to affect New York State in many ways

Thursday, November 17, 2011

A new assessment of the impact that climate change will have in New York State is detailed in a 600-page report, commissioned by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. Fir and spruce trees are expected to die out in the Catskills, and New York City's backup drinking water supply may well be contaminated as a result of seawater making its way farther up the Hudson River, among other scenarios.
