The Southwest is showing more signs of climate change than any other part of the country, a pair of climate experts say, calling for a no-regrets strategy in the face of global warming. The strategy was detailed in the journal Science to prepare residents for hotter and drier conditions.
The government has determined that hundreds of levees nationwide no longer meet its standards that ensure protection during major floods, a decision that forces thousands of property owners to buy federal flood insurance.
Climate change could threaten the pollination of plants and the watering of crops, both of which could affect food security, according to two studies released this week. New Canadian research suggests climate change may be causing flowers to open before bees wake up from hibernation, so the bees don't get early nectar and the flowers aren't pollinated.
More than a third of the contiguous USA has a higher-than-average risk of flooding in the coming months, and residents in the Midwest are likely to see the worst of it, government forecasters warned Tuesday.
Opening the door to possible broad new federal regulation on U.S.
Like other villages around Mexico, Acasico will soon be submerged under water, falling victim to dam projects aimed at meeting the water demands of factories, vegetable farms and the country's growing cities. Since 2006, the government has flooded 11 villages to build two reservoirs.
A new report by the Natural Resources Defense Council calls climate change the “greatest threat” to the country's national parks. The report lists 25 parks most at risk due to melting ice, drought, flooding, disappearing wildlife and other factors.
A massive and growing landslide shoved a quarter-mile of State Route 410 into the Naches River, forcing the river to find a new course and causing some flooding in the sparsely populated valley on the eastern slopes of the Cascade Range. The cause of the slide was not known, but Washington State Patrol Sgt. Tom Foster said it appeared to be a result of earth shifting beneath the hillside.
The Howard Hanson Dam began showing disturbing signs of vulnerability after a torrential rainstorm in January, and officials have been warning residents to buy flood insurance, stow valuables in safe places and be ready to flee.
September 4, 2009--Arctic thaw could cause massive flood, curbing non-CO2 pollutants could help (Environmental News Service)
Continued warming of the Arctic could lead to global weather changes and flooding that affects one-quarter of the world's people, finds a new report by the global conservation organization WWF. The report was released in Geneva at the World Climate Conference-3, hosted by the World Meteorological Organization.
