Abstract

This article argues that Pennsylvania should prepare and implement a climate change strategy that addresses all economic sectors as well as adaptation. Climate change provides both great risks and great opportunities for Pennsylvania. To realize the opportunities, Pennsylvania should adopt or modify laws and policies to realize a variety of economic, social, and even environmental benefits, wholly apart from their greenhouse gas reduction benefit. A strategic process would identify the appropriate laws and policies.
