World Climate Change Vulnerability Map

Maplecroft, a “global risks advisory firm,” has just released a world map for 2011 that shows the risk from climate change borne around the world. (Dark green/blue areas are most vulnerable.) The calculation is based on both the odds of sea-level-rise/natural disasters, and the ability of local authorities to deal with those issues. The countries least likely to suffer due to climate change are those in Scandinavia, while the United States is graded as “medium risk”…although things look pretty calm out in Idaho, at least.
