Oregon’s Efforts to Reduce GHG
Emissions and Adapt to Climate
Change: A Brief Status Report

Fall Canceled
After 3 Billion Seasons
WASHINGTON, DC—Fall, the long- running series of shorter
days and cooler nights, was canceled earlier this week after
nearly 3 billion seasons on Earth, sources reported Tuesday
“As much as we'd like to see it stay, fall will not be returning
for another season," National Weather Service president
John Hayes announced during a muggy press conference
Nov. 6. "Fall had a great run, but sadly, times have
changed."

Likely changes in future
climate conditions in Oregon
1. Increase in average annual air temperatures
2. Changes in hydrology, water supply, and water quality;
reduced snowpack and water availability in some basins,
changes in timing of water availability
3. Increased incidence of drought
4. Increased coastal erosion from increasing sea levels and
increasing wave heights and storm surges related to
intensification of North Pacific winter storms
5. Shift in distribution of habitats and species, with a likely
increase in invasive species and reduced ability of
terrestrial and aquatic habitats to support wildlife species
and populations

Likely changes in future
climate conditions in Oregon
6. Increase in ocean temperatures, with potential for changes
in ocean chemistry (nutrients and dissolved oxygen) and
increased ocean acidification
7. Increased frequency of extreme daily precipitation events
8. Increase in wildfire frequency and intensity
9. Increase in incidence and magnitude of damaging floods
10. Increase in incidence of landslides
11. Increase in diseases, insect pests, and plant pests
12. Loss of wetland ecosystem services
