'The U.S. Drought Monitor, established in 1999, is a weekly map of drought conditions that is produced jointly by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the National Drought Mitigation Center (NDMC) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The U.S. Drought Monitor website is hosted and maintained by the NDMC.'

'California’s 2007-2009 drought exacerbated ongoing tensions among competing water uses. While drought is most common in California and the Southwest, drought also can exacerbate water tensions in other regions. For example, the 2007-2008 drought in the Southeast heightened a long-standing dispute in the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River (ACF) basin. Both California and the ACF are again experiencing drought conditions, as are the Rio Grande and Upper Colorado River basins.'

GAO: Information on Potential Economic Effects Could Help Guide Federal Efforts to Reduce Fiscal Exposure, 2017.
Over the last decade, extreme weather and fire events have cost the federal government over $350 billion, according to the Office of Management and Budget. These costs will likely rise as the climate changes, according to the U.S. Global Change Research Program.
Methods used to estimate the potential economic effects of climate change in the United States—using linked climate science and economics models—are based on developing research. The methods and the studies that use them produce imprecise results because of modeling and other limitations but can convey insight into potential climate damages across sectors in the United States.
The two available national-scale studies that examine the economic effects of climate change across U.S. sectors suggested that potential economic effects could be significant and unevenly distributed across sectors and regions. For example, for 2020 through 2039, one study estimated between $4 billion and $6 billion in annual coastal property damages from sea level rise and more frequent and intense storms. Also, under this study, the Southeast likely faces greater effects than other regions because of coastal property damages.
Belcher O, Bigger P, Neimark B, Kennelly C. Hidden carbon costs of the “ everywhere war”: Logistics, geopolitical ecology, and the carbon boot-print of the US military. Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers, 19 June 2019.
This paper examines the US military's impact on climate by analysing the geopolitical ecology of its global logistical supply chains. Our geopolitical ecology framework examines how material–ecological metabolic flows shape geopolitical and geoeconomic power relations. We argue that to account for the US military as a major climate actor, one must understand the logistical supply chain that makes its acquisition and consumption of hydrocarbon-based fuels possible.
I USA kan Donald Trump lyve uden konsekvenser. Nu lyver han om CO2-reduktioner : I en timelang session hyldede Donald Trump sin regerings enestående indsats for miljøet. Han nævnte ikke klimaændringerne med et ord, men brystede sig ikke desto mindre af at have sikret større amerikanske CO2-reduktioner, end noget andet land har præsteret. Desværre er det løgn. / : Jørgen Steen Nielsen. I: Information, 10. juli 2019.
Mens Alaska lider under historisk hedebølge med op til 32 grader, og ekstremregn sætter store dele af Washington – herunder kælderen i Det Hvide Hus – under vand, står præsident Donald Trump i bygningens East Room og lyver for åben mikrofon om klimaet.
