California's Future in the Face of Climate Change


No one is sure of exactly what is going to happen to the world in the face of climate change.  Three things are known about California, however. first, is that California used to have a history of decade-long droughts.  Second, is that despite levels of rain, California will have less snowpack.  Third, is that California is a state of extremes, and climate change is likely to make those extremes more extreme.
