Report looks at effects of a warming Vermont


BURLINGTON (AP) - Scientists from the University of Vermont and some of the state's business and political leaders are going to be talking about the long-term effects of climate change in the state.

The Vermont Climate Assessment report developed by UVM's Gund Institute is due to be released Tuesday.

The document is said to be the first state-scale climate assessment in the nation.

Officials say that coupled with the National Climate Assessment, released last month, it provides a detailed portrait and forecast of climate impacts on Vermont communities, landscapes and the economy.

Some of the information that will be contained in the report will include how much Vermont's climate is expected to warm in the next 35 years and how warming could affect the ski industry.
