A key lesson from climate physics and one well evident in the models is that climate change is water change. The two are inextricably linked.
Colorado River Research Group
In October, the Colorado River Research Group (CRRG) published a new paper, Climate Change and the Colorado River: What we already know. There is something remarkable about this paper: it’s only four pages long. In fact, all of the papers published by this group of university professors are four pages long and highly readable “gateways” into the science behind our water issues.
News Deeply’s interview of Douglas Kenney, a member of the group and the director of the Western Water Program at the University of Colorado, provides an “executive summary” of the new paper. If you have a little more time, read the paper itself. It may be the clearest analysis of climate change you have read.
