By: Climate Solutions New England & UNH Sustainability Institute
Climate Report cover
Released today, there are 2 very important reports detailing the expected changes to the climate in southern NH and northern NH in the future. Climate Solutions New England, an initiative of the UNH Sustainability Institute, was tasked by the Granite State Future project to assess past and potential future climate change across NH. The reports detail how the state has been getting warmer and wetter over the last century, how the rate of change has increased over the last four decades, and how those trends will likely continue over the 21st century.
