NOTE: This copy is the FINAL DRAFT report obtained by the NY Times ahead of official publication. The final report is estimated to be released in fall, 2017. The report was completed this year and is a special science section of the National Climate Assessment, which is congressionally mandated every four years. The National Academy of Sciences has signed off on the draft report, and the authors are awaiting permission from the Trump administration to release it. As a key input into the Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA4), the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) oversaw the production of this special, stand-alone report of the state of science relating to climate change and its physical impacts. This report is designed to be an authoritative assessment of the science of climate change, with a focus on the United States, to serve as the foundation for efforts to assess climate-related risks and inform decision-making about responses. In accordance with this purpose, it does not include an assessment of literature on climate change mitigation, adaptation, economic valuation, or societal responses, nor does it include policy recommendations. The Climate Science Special Report (CSSR) serves several purposes for NCA4, including providing 1) an updated detailed analysis of the findings of how climate change is affecting weather and climate across the United States; 2) an executive summary that will be used as the basis for the science summary of NCA4; and 3) foundational information and projections for climate change, including extremes, to improve "end-to-end" consistency in sectoral, regional, and resilience analyses for NCA4. As an assessment and analysis of the science, this report provides important input to the development of NCA4 and its primary focus on the human welfare, societal, economic and environmental elements of climate change.

This Climate Action Plan (CAP) serves as the City’s strategy to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, implementing both General Plan and State guidance. The City of San Mateo prepared this CAP for the incorporated City of San Mateo. This CAP demonstrates the City of San Mateo’s leadership and commitment to reduce GHG emissions. As a tool of the General Plan, this CAP achieves General Plan GHG reduction goals while demonstrating the City’s consistency with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines Section 15183.5(b) and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) CEQA Air Quality Guidelines. Strategies in the CAP exceed a 15% reduction in GHG emissions below 2005 emissions levels by 2020. This CAP serves as the City’s comprehensive strategy to reduce GHG emissions and streamline theenvironmental review of GHG emissions of future development projects in the City of San Mateo. The City has analyzed this CAP with an addendum to the General Plan Environmental Impact Report.
