"Impact Of Climate Change Hitting Home, U.S. Report Finds"
"The consequences of climate change are now hitting the United States on several fronts, including health, infrastructure, water supply, agriculture and especially more frequent severe weather, a congressionally mandated study has concluded."
"A draft of the U.S. National Climate Assessment, released on Friday, said observable change to the climate in the past half-century 'is due primarily to human activities, predominantly the burning of fossil fuel,' and that no areas of the United States were immune to change.
'Corn producers in Iowa, oyster growers in Washington State, and maple syrup producers in Vermont have observed changes in their local climate that are outside of their experience,' the report said."
