Turning climate change data into policy is no easy feat

Source(s):  Capital Public Radio, Inc.

"Data suggest climate change is bringing an increased risk of more severe forest fires, but warming temperatures may cause other complex ecosystem changes. Local agencies are already planning ways to mitigate and adapt, but making policy based on models that show global trends over the next century is not an easy task," according to Capital Public Radio. Research done at Lake Tahoe, USA predicts less snow, more extremes, such as drought and flooding.
