A Global Climate Change could result in sea level rises, changes to patterns of precipitation, increased variability in the weather, and a variety of other consequences.

These changes threaten our health, agriculture, water resources, forests, wildlife, and coastal areas. For more information on the science and impacts of Global Climate Change, visit EPA's Global Warming Web site.
