The impacts of climate change:

     (1) are extremely varied,

         (2) can be categorized in many different ways, and

              (3) can be difficult to disambiguate from both mitigation and adaptation measures.

Consequently, rather than list the many particular climate change impacts on this page, they

     are integrated into the Climate Change A>Z page (color coded with  I ), while others are

     distributed across several pages (listed immediately below).
