Integrated Assessment of Greenhouse Gases and Climate Impacts
This project is applying the MIT Integrated Global Systems Model (IGSM) framework to assess the potential impacts of greenhouse gases and climate adaptation strategies. We will examine multiple environmental effects on human health, food supply and price changes, infrastructure, energy demand, the quantity and quality of water resources, and sea level rise and coastal damage. By improving the public's understanding of how climate change may affect them, individuals, communities, states and Federal agencies will be better positioned to consider actions to limit the negative consequences of environmental change.
