The Impacts of Climate Change on Human Health in the United States: A Scientific Assessment by U.S Global Change Research Program ( - 0).


The U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) Climate and Health Assessment was developed to enhance understanding and inform decisions about the growing threat of climate change to the health and well-being of residents of the United States. This scientific assessment is part of the ongoing efforts of USGCRP’s sustained National Climate Assessment (NCA) process and was called for under the President’s Climate Action Plan. USGCRP agencies identified human health impacts as a high-priority topic for scientific assessment. This assessment was developed by a team of more than 100 experts to inform public health officials, urban and disaster response planners, decision makers, and other stakeholders within and outside of government who are interested in better understanding the risks climate change presents to human health. The USGCRP Climate and Health Assessment draws from a large body of scientific peer-reviewed research and other publicly available sources; all sources meet the standards of the Information Quality Act. The report was extensively reviewed by the public and experts, including a committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. ( Drawn from the report Executive Summary, lightly edited for clarity by Patrick McHaffie)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

That "some materials are copyrighted and used with permission" statement is very problematic for us since we cannot record that material. Is there any way to determine what materials were copyrighted? If not, we can't do this at LV. (And even if we can determine what is PD and what isn't and omit the copyrighted material, I'm not sure about us having it on LV.)

i've reviewed the publication carefully and it's rather ambiguous. i believe all copyrighted material are some (not all) images and figures. i've emailed the managers at the USGCRP for help/clarification about this matter.
