Cali’s climate is a-changin’
New state report documents multiple effects of climate change on Golden State
A new state report confirms that climate change is having a significant effect throughout the Golden State.
Decreasing spring-snowmelt runoff, rising coastal sea-levels and increasing wildfires are a few of the impacts of global warming on the state, according to a California Environmental Protection Agency press release.
“High, low and average temperatures are all rising,” said the press release, “and extreme heat events also have increased in duration and frequency. … [N]ighttime (minimum) temperatures have increased almost twice as fast as maximum (daytime) temperatures.”
