New Hampshire's social and economic health is predicated in part upon the health of its lakes and rivers, oceans and beaches, mountains, scenic towns, and natural areas. Natural features and aesthetic beauty contribute significantly to New Hampshire's fiber. Global climate change will affect the climate of New Hampshire. Doubling CO2 from pre-industrial levels is predicted to raise global average temperatures between 1.8o F and 6.3o F. Parts of New Hampshire could experience even slightly warmer trends. Higher temperatures may increase extreme events, and we may experience periods of winter thaw followed by intense cold; spring and summer drought; and summer heat stress.
