Climate records show that the Pacific Northwest has warmed about 1 ºC since , or about 50 percent more than the global average warming over the same period. The warming rate for the Pacific Northwest over the next half century is projected to be in the range of +° C per decade. operations, missions, and personnel. Resilience to the impacts of climate change is, therefore, of paramount importance. DOE expects climate change-related severe weather events to increase in frequency and intensity at sites across the DOE complex. DOE sites have already experienced impacts from climate change. For instance, Los.

In the Third National Climate Assessment, the Key Messages for the Northwest focused on projected climate impacts to the region. 1 These impacts, many of which are now better understood in the scientific literature, remain the primary climate concerns over the coming decades. In this updated assessment, the Key Messages explore how climate. The National Climate Assessment summarizes the impacts of climate change on the United States, now and in the future. A team of more than experts guided by a member Federal Advisory Committee produced the report, which was extensively reviewed by the public and experts, including federal agencies and a panel of the National Academy of.

Climate Central surveys and conducts scientific research on climate change and informs the public of key findings. Our scientists publish and our journalists report on climate science, energy, sea. Climate change is likely to bring warmer, wetter winters, earlier snowmelt runoff, and longer, drier summers to the Pacific Northwest. Hydropower dam operators need to be ready for the change, scientists from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory told the Council at its November meeting, reviewing the results of an international study.

Climate strongly affects energy supply and demand in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) and Washington State (WA). We evaluate potential effects of climate change on the seasonality and annual amount of PNW hydropower production, and on heating and cooling energy by: The University of Washington’s Climate Impacts Group (CIG) is an interdisciplinary research group studying the impacts of natural climate variability and global climate change in the Pacific Northwest.

Vulnerabilities to climate change vary across regions depending upon the nature of the climate impacts (see text box), the types and age of energy systems present, and the projected combined impacts on operations, energy demand, and energy supply chains.

Rather, our disaster will be that the Pacific Northwest is part of extensive natural ecosystems and political orders that will be hammered elsewhere by climate change, and the hurt will spill over to us.

For example, suppose that the Pacific NW retains an equable climate, easy on the human metabolism, and kind to agriculture. studies that look at the scenarios of future climate for the Pacific Northwest.

Most notably are the Climate Impacts Group’s Washington Climate Change Impacts Assessment and the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute’s Oregon Climate Assessment Report, which developed climate change scenarios for Oregon and Washington State.

To carry out the needed adaptation and mitigation steps, a quantification of the expected level of climate change is needed, both at the global and the regional scale; in the end, the impact of climate change is felt at the local/regional level.

Abstract The Pacific Northwest (PNW) hydropower resource, central to the region’s electricity supply, is vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. The Northwest Power and Conservation Council (NWPCC), an interstate compact agency, has conducted long term planning for the PNW electricity supply for its Power Plan.
