In recent decades human activity has become the major driver of climate change. The Arctic has thus far experienced the greatest change and the impact has spread throughout the Northern Hemisphere resulting in a fast transition to a new climate state and significant climate instability. The impacts of climate change are one of the greatest security threats of this century. Maine is and will continue to experience climate change, but with good planning Maine could be well placed to both deal with and positively build upon change.

Paul Andrew Mayewski, Director and Professor of the Climate Change Institute at the University of Maine, is an internationally acclaimed glaciologist, climate scientist and polar explorer. He has led >60 expeditions to the remotest regions of the planet and made significant contributions to climate science that are documented in 500 scientific publications, two popular books and hundreds of major media appearances.
