and Texas. Climate change will cost millions of dollars in labor productivity decline, energy demand will significantly increase, and the agricultural sector will suffer considerably losses. General Trends The southeastern United States and Texas will face significant economic risks from the continuous climate change. The risks vary from different states, which will be explained in general. Texas is going to be focused deeply in separate. Despite the variability in each region, we can identify some general trends in how the states in the southeastern United States and Texas will react to the climate change. • Increasing heat: the southeastern region of the U.S. is more likely to have a considerably rise in temperature than any other region of the nation. Residents may have two to four times more days with temperatures over 95°F in the next 25 years. The continuous climate change will also increase humidity, which leads to a combination of heat and humidity that creates an outside condition dangerous to the people. Skin temperature should be below 100°F in order to cool down and void a heat stroke. • Inundation from higher mean sea levels: ocean temperatures rises as air does, leading to a rise in sea level.
