FRISCO — The climate in the Rocky Mountains is changing rapidly, outside the range to which society has adapted in the past, according to the EPA’s draft climate adaptation implementation plan for the agency’s Southwest Region, which covers western Colorado.

Most of the “cascading effects” of global climate change will be felt in the region, including increased air temperature, decreased precipitation in some areas, and more severe storms. Along the West Coast, oceans will become more acidic and warm and sea level will rise.[bobberwyn]

There is also a risk from 'atmospheric rivers' which I, at least, had never heard of. A factor in the devastating floods in Europe of late, they have hit the US west coast (always west to east) and could flood out the major crop production for the US. But it will probably have to occur first before anything preventive is done..

Wrong.

The climate in the Rocky Mountains is changing rapidly, outside the range to which society has adapted in the past.

Nothing there about day to day weather. Get a clue or get a life.
