Our guest blogger, Tonya Graham, from ClimateWise®, describes how ClimateWise® helps infrastructure developers understand how climate
change is likely to affect specific project sites. Ms. Graham is a member of the American
Society of Adaptation Professionals.
According to the National Climate
Change Assessment, temperatures are increasing, sea level is rising, and
snow and ice cover are decreasing worldwide. Accompanying these are increasing
trends in extremes of heat and heavy precipitation events, and decreases in
extreme cold. All of these trends are expected to get markedly worse. They represent vulnerabilities to our
communities if our infrastructure is not designed to withstand them.
