To explore how the warming environment will affect New York’s communities, ecosystems, and economy, Gov. Kathy Hochul named several Cornellians to the state’s Climate Impacts Assessment project. The group will conduct research and then suggest how the state can best prepare for climate change and adapt for the future.
The research effort will be led by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) in partnership with many other groups, including the large contingent of Cornell scientists and Cornell Cooperative Extension educators. The assessment is expected to be finished in early 2023.
