USGS: Report On Abrupt Climate Change

The US Geological Survey has published a report on the threat of "Abrupt Climate Change". This report synthesizes recent research that suggests the IPCC has significantly underestimated the rate and severity of climate change negative impacts. In particular, Arctic sea ice will disappear more rapidly, ice sheet melting will cause much higher sea level rise, and sustained drought conditions will likely dominate the American Southwest. There has been plenty of news coverage: USGS Press Release, Washington Post, LA Times.
