MONTANA CLIMATE ASSESSMENT (MCA). The MCA will become public this Wednesday, Sep 20th, at noon! The Montana Climate Assessment is ​an ​exhaustive work, ~100,000 words, on climate change impacts to Montana now and into the next century, with a focus on climate, water, forests, and agriculture

We in Montana are distinctly proud of the work that went into this critically important document. And when your state is ready, let me tell you that it takes some kind of a concerted effort, well over 2 years in the running here in Montana, by a large number of dedicated folks. Here's my quick count of those from our state (and a few from ​farther ​afield) involved in creating the MCA: 5 lead authors​; 22 other chapter authors​; 9 members of a Leadership Team + helpers​; 110 individuals or groups acknowledged as having an important role in the MCA​; and then an I-can't-even-count-'em number of Montanans who participated in stakeholder meetings across the state to define what they ​wanted ​the Assessment​ to cover​, plus those who put in invaluable efforts to comment on the first for-external-review version of the MCA a couple months back.

So the MCA arrives for all to review begin​n​ing this Wednesday! . Don't let the Assessment's large size scare you because a) the MCA is scoped to be readily read and understood by all, including if you're just focused on certain issues; b) a 13-page Executive Summary will also be released on the 20th; and c) the information of the MCA will be available on a website, montanaclimate.org, again beginning on the 20th.

The MONTANA CLIMATE ASSESSMENT is being released today! Here's a fine national news piece on the release that just aired on WBUR's (yes, that's Boston!) program Here & Now. #climateChange #Montana

MONTANA CLIMATE ASSESSMENT (MCA).--Big morning at Wild Joe's in Bozeman. Lead author Cathy Whitlock and I pored over the doggone-it-we're-ready-for-release-to-the-printer version(!!) this morning.

Stay tuned: official MCA release press conference coming Sep 20!

Tis a truly beautiful document filled with super valuable information for our state. That information comes courtesy the blood, sweat, and tears (OK, mostly the 2nd of those) of an incredible group of Montana scientists from MSU, UM, the state, NGOs, and beyond, plus engaged Montanans as stakeholders (& to be sure, we are all stakeholders in the realm of climate change).

But for a moment just a shout-out to the Leadership Team: Kristina Sussman (for the final, beautiful, highly accessible layout and rendering of the MCA), plus Sam Brooks, Cathy Whitlock, Tom Armstrong, Anna Tuttle (& now Madison Boone). I am so very proud to be part of this team.
