Preparing for a Changing Climate: Washington State’s Integrated Climate Response Strategy

By taking action now to respond and adapt to changing climate conditions, Washington can significantly limit the damage and reduce the long-term costs of the climaterelated impacts that are expected to grow in number and intensity in the decades to come. If no action is taken, potential costs to Washington from climate change impacts are projected to reach nearly $10 billion per year by 2020 from increased health costs, storm damage, coastal destruction, rising energy costs, increased wildfires, drought, and other impacts.
