“Just like all the locations in the world won´t be affected the same way by climatic change, there are going to be significant differences across Georgia as well,” Kiefer said. “We´re not looking at horrible disasters, but the adjustments in the world´s atmosphere will mean an adjustment in our checkbooks as well. Some regions in Georgia will be paying more than others.”
Kiefer holds a doctorate in physical geography from the University of Georgia, and has published research on soil carbon dioxide, geochemistry, and acid rain in international scientific journals.
