  https://science2017.globalchange.gov
Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA4), Volume II (2018)
  https://nca2018.globalchange.gov

  The National Climate Assessment (NCA) assesses the science
  of climate change and variability and its impacts across the
  United States, now and throughout this century.
  
  Summary Findings
  
  These Summary Findings represent a high-level synthesis of
  the material in the underlying report. The findings
  consolidate Key Messages and supporting evidence from 16
  national-level topic chapters, 10 regional chapters, and 2
  chapters that focus on societal response strategies
  (mitigation and adaptation). Unless otherwise noted,
  qualitative statements regarding future conditions in these
  Summary Findings are broadly applicable across the range of
  different levels of future climate change and associated
  impacts considered in this report.

The exorbitant cost of climate procrastination
  https://phys.org/news/2019-02-exorbitant-climate-procrastination.html

  A 3deg C warming would wreak havoc on the planet, justifying
  the absolute necessity of the +1.5deg C limit. However, even
  a +1.5deg C change would incur heavy consequences. The
  adaptation cost would undoubtedly be high both for current
  and future generations: loss of agricultural yields,
  sea-level rise, whole regions rendered uninhabitable,
  leading to massive flows of climate migrants, collapse of
  the ecosystems and impoverished biodiversity, extreme
  meteorological events, seashore and topsoil erosion... All
  these effects will grow even more dire as global warming
  proceeds."

How climate change can make catastrophic weather systems linger for longer
  https://phys.org/news/2019-02-climate-catastrophic-weather-linger-longer.html

  There does seem to be a plausible link between human-induced
  warming, slowing of jet streams, blocking highs, and extreme
  weather around the world. There is also a trend for the
  slowing of the forward speed (as opposed to wind speed) of
  tropical cyclones around the world. One recent study showed
  the average forward speeds of tropical cyclones fell by 10%
  worldwide between 1949 and 2016. Meanwhile, over the same
  period, the forward speed of tropical cyclones dropped by
  22% over land in the Australian region.
