In Colorado's climate change hot spot, the West's water is evaporating
I think it is really important to share these stories about how climate change is already affecting a lot of communities today. It is not something that will just start taking effect in 10 or 20 years.
This piece really does a good job explaining how much this drought and climate change is affecting the region from affecting crops, to snow packs, tourism, etc.
What drives me crazy is the number of people in the region living through the effects of this and still denying reality or fighting tooth and nail to prevent any efforts to combat it. I just don't know how to begin to reach these people if they can see the outcomes of this themselves and still deny reality.
