Climate Change, Glacier National Park. . . On the road in the American Northwest.
Climate Chaos . . .
Higher temperatures (an increase of 1.5 F. in the Northwest
over the last 100 years), earlier mountain springs and shorter
winters, with less precipitation, and less of that falling as snow.
All are evidently features of long-term climate change.
Recent forest fires, like the one in the summer of 2003, have
raged with unprecedented intensity. The relationship of more
frequent and intense wildfires with the loss of the glacier ice
is something I hope to watch closely in the coming decade.
