The SC Department of Natural Resources finalized a report on the impact of climate change in the state on November 18, 2011. The report was not published.
In February 2013, The State and other newspapers around South Carolina reported on the existence of the climate change report. The Post and Courier published and article linking to the report on March 3. The P&C article was not consistently available online by March 27, 2013.
Although the SC Department of Natural Resources has promised to release the report at some point, we are offering the final unpublished leaked report here for the use and education of the public.
