How will climate change affect the pacific northwest region?



  1. 0 Votes

    Studies have shown that climate change is affecting the Pacific Northwest by raising temperatures and altering the pattern of rainfall. Temperatures have increased by 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit since 1920, and models project temperatures increasing gradually (up to 5.2 degrees Fahrenheit by the 2080s). In addition, the projected change in rainfall is expected to bring wetter autumns and winters and drier summers. Rising temperatures will bring precipitation in the form of rain rather than snow during the winter. Increased winter precipitation and rising sea levels are expected to cause flooding and coastal erosion.
