2 contrasting 'climate futures' are presented in a new Greater Grand Canyon Region report
A new report by the U.S. Department of the Interior about the Greater Grand Canyon Region has been released.
It shows, perhaps unsurprisingly, a rate of temperature increase in the region from 1970-2020. That’s according to a release by the agency, and is one of the key takeaways from the document.
Those increased temperatures have induced both, “physical and ecological changes to the landscape [affecting] Colorado River flow, wildfire, tree regeneration and mortality, bird ranges, and insect changes,” according to the federal agency.
Two contrasting “climate futures” based on the findings are also presented.
