What Does Climate Change Mean for Colorado?
Add to your calendar
Date: March 23, 6:30pm-9:00pm
Continues Until:
Location: Unitarian Universalist Church, 536 Ouray Ave Grand Junction, CO 81501
Details: Colorado is already being impacted by Climate Change. Our average temperature increases are expected to be one and half to two times as large as global averages. Some of the other impacts include the following:
  • Declining snowfall in mountain regions resulting in reduced surface water.
  • Dryer forests due to early snowmelt results in higher wildfire risks.
  • Colorado is one of the fastest warming states in the country.
  • Increased difficulty in administration of water rights.
  • Increased water demand to crops as temperatures rise.
  • Increased extreme weather events.
  • Reduced air quality in metropolitan areas of Colorado.
  • Increases in serious illness and death due to heat stress.
  • Increased chances of brownouts and power outages.
These are just a few of the effects to Colorado, but impacts also include ecosystems, organisms, human health, agriculture, infrastructure and the overall economy.

After we discuss the impacts, we will discuss ways that you can help turn it around. Please join the conversation!
