On May 1, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) Assistant Director for Climate Change and Assessment Kathy Jacobs encouraged members of both the public and private sectors to act now on climate change rather than wait for final results of the national climate assessment. The draft national climate assessment was released in January, and Jacobs did not anticipate the final results, which will be released in early 2014, to be drastically different from the draft recommendations. The draft report contained projections on decreased snow cover, increased ocean acidification, larger wildfires, more droughts, rising sea levels, and higher air, land, and water temperatures. Jacobs pushed officials to consider these projections when creating business plans.
