Climate and Agriculture in the Southeast

Impacts of climate change at different temperature thresholds

Here is a good and comprehensive tabular summary of how increases in global temperature of 1.5 C, 2 C and beyond will affect a wide variety of weather and climate events, including sea level rise, heat waves, average and extreme temperatures and rainfall, and crop yields as well as other variables. A lot to take in, but a good summary of what we and our children are going to have to deal with in the future.
