Resilient Analytics, Inc conducted a study in conjunction with major utilities to
determine the potential impact to field workers. If no adaptation procedures are put in place, it is projected that workplace accidents could increase up to 8% by 2030 and up to 17% in some locations by 2070.
Resilient Analytics, Inc studied the potential impact of. climate change on corn production and found that the United States sees increases in growing degree days, but the advantage of the growing season will be offset by the reduction in available water.
