[Sally M Kane; Gary Wynn Yohe;] -- "Changes in climate and climate variability have an effect on people's behaviour around the world, and public institutions have an important part to play in influencing our ability to respond to and. An essential guidance for decision-makers seeking to better understand how climate variability and change impact the southeast region and its communities; Rich in science and case studies, this report sets the stage for making the necessary preparations for climate change. With the recognition that climate changes are inevitable as a result of the observed increase in greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere, there is a great need for better observations and analyses to document the past and current climate and how it has changed with time. Evidence continues to mount that human activities are altering Earth’s climate. Observational products, statistical methods, and numerical models are important tools in understanding these changes, as well as the impacts on regional to global scales. There remain significant challenges in understanding physical processes affecting climate variability and quantifying the relevant climate.
