New Climate Report draft

The New York Times reported August 9 on a draft of the national climate assessment, required by Congress to be updated every 4 years. The 673-page draft report focuses on changes already observed in the US, including increasing intensity of precipitation in the Northeast (first figure below) and increasing likelihood of drought in snowpack-dependent California. A related story reports that summers in the United States really are getting hotter.
