Hikers on Vermont's famed Camel's Hump Mountain might be able to take a bad weather bypass as more intense storms become the norm in a climate-changed future. But there is no bypass for the big climate changes now affecting Vermont's landscapes and economy. In the first such effort in the United States, on June 10, the Vermont Climate Assessment, produced at the University of Vermont, was released. It follows the path of the National Climate Assessment released in May. The new report combines global and national data and models with local knowledge to create a portrait of Vermont's current climate impacts -- and a detailed forecast of this New England state's warmer, wetter future.
