it is supposed to be quadrennial (Here’s a historical blow-by-blow by a former federal climate office official) Insiders consider the second official report published with little fanfare in 2009 during the early days of Obama’s first term as a “stillborn” effort Still some Washington science policy veterans consider the assessment a rather unique effort for a scientific endeavor because it includes input from local groups and industries facing possible climate impacts in the future For instance scientists and activists involved in the original massive effort that produced the initial 2000 report say the 2014 version also has a strong “bottom-up” flavor The dozen or so federal agencies that assembled today’s report sponsored some 70 workshops and “listening sessions” over the past 4 years allowing local groups to not only give input but also shape the report’s form In addition small federal grants to state and local nonprofit groups policymakers business owners and academics allowed them to submit formal “input reports” that gave federal officials access to local know-how The overall message: “We have enough information on climate to act and we know it’s happening” says climatologist Victoria Keener among the recipients of the grants Keener works for the Honolulu-based East-West Center a nonprofit As part of her group’s contribution to the NCA she led a diverse group in 2012 in publishing a 170-page report called Climate Change and Pacific Islands: Indicators and Impacts (It’s part of a project called the Pacific Islands Regional Climate Assessment or PIRCA) Several of PIRCA’s findings touching on fishing sea level rise disaster planning and much else “made it into the final report” she says So did one of her document’s anecdotes: It relates how Steve Jacobs the vice president of a landfill in Waianae Hawaii used climate prediction information on La Nia in 2010 to drive a decision to spend $300000 to upgrade his facility’s storm water system “When the rain hit we were ready” he says Keener and others are hopeful that the NCA has catalyzed a process that doesn’t stop with the publication of the massive document today And to keep the buzz going a federal climate office has created discussion boards planned follow-on meetings and organized local organizing committees to follow up on the report with meaningful climate adaptation and resilience planning For her part Keener says that the White House effort has helped drive local regulatory decisions and government interest including a ruling by a local water board to alter policies in light of predictions of future dry conditions (See these minutes page 5) And Jacobs says he’s expecting more extreme events in the coming years and has helped lead local efforts to improve planning for hurricanes on the islands “We believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” he says The White House and its hundreds of scientist allies are hoping that kind of thinking makes the NCA the rare report in Washington—one that has a real-world impact But some outsiders say the report could have gone further The World Wildlife Fund’s Nicky Sundt a former federal official with the US Global Change Research Program lauds the new report as part of "a permanent process" to spin out subsequent updates and reports as the nation prepares for climate change But he says the federal advisory committee that oversees the report which includes both government and nongovernment members prevented the process from including “some of the most important policy issues … There’s nothing in the report on budgets nothing on national security"Genoa: Lucas Pouille sent France into the Davis Cup semi-final on the strength of his four-set defeat of Italy’s Fabio Fognini in Genoa on Sunday France’s Lucas Pouille celebrates winning his Davis Cup match against Italy’s Fabio Fognini Reuters Pouille battled past the Italian number one 2-6 6-1 7-6 (7/3) 6-3 to give France an unassailable 3-1 lead in the quarter-final Sunday’s redundant second reverse singles will not be played organisers announced The title holders will face either Spain or Germany in the last-four tie in September Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert had cruised to a straight-sets victory over Fognini and Simone Bolelli in the doubles on Saturday to put France in control Pouille had clinched France’s first point on Friday with a five-set success over Andreas Seppi with Fognini levelling in a bad-tempered four-set affair against Jeremy Chardy the jig is up.
