Effects of Climate Change

The growing problem of ocean acidification caused by increased carbon dioxide emissions is changing the chemistry of the ocean and threatening marine life. The Natural Resources Defense Council has published Ocean Acidification: The Other CO2 Problem on its website, and has produced a short film narrated by Sigourney Weaver, entitled Acid Test: The Global Challenge of Ocean Acidification.

On August 23, 2009 the Connecticut Department of Agriculture held a workshop on Predicting the Impact of Climate Change on Agricultural Production, examining potential risks to those agricultural crops produced in the state.
