Summary of Article: Over the last decade, the effects of climate change have become very apparent to people living all over the country, as temperature and precipitation patterns have been altered greatly. However, there has also been extensive research done on climate change, and it has been determined that bigger storms and more natural disasters will occur. The study found that rainstorms will become more intense and more frequent, if greenhouse gas emissions continue at the same rate. The effects will be more dramatic in the Northeast and on the Gulf Coast. Also, in the Pacific Northwest, the climate change can lead to increased flooding and droughts, a very bad combination for residents and crops that grow there. The effects in the Midwest are the most concerning since so many crops grow there, and the soil will become eroded as a result of the severe weather.
