Hawaii   Will   Be   Hit   Harder  
Than   Any   Other   State

More and stronger hurricanes; severe damage to tourism, our economy’s largest source of income; beach loss; more disease; closed hotels and lost jobs; water shortages; dying coral reefs; damaged infrastructure; higher average temperatures; decreased trade winds; periods of drought and heavy rain with flooding; sea water mixing with drinking water; endangered fisheries; stressed native animals and plants; increased spread of invasive species; declining crop production.
