'This book is a good first attempt at examining the regional impacts of climate change for the United States. . . Overall, the book is an important read for those interested in climate assessment. It alerts us to the possibility that the impacts of global warming need not be homogenous, and points to the need for further research in combining basic ecological-economic modeling with plausible scenarios of technological change and globalization of the US economy.' - Ujjayant Chakravorty, Journal of Regional Science
