This web seminar addresses global change in the western part of the USA. It starts with changes to the planet, increasing temperatures over a shorter period of time. Snow packs and planting times are reviewed to prove these changes. Part two describes how scientists know about climate change and part three describes what we can expect in the future. This is a very thorough presentation with lots of excellent data in graphic displays great to show in a classroom.
