Scientists in Germany are trying to fill in the gaps in the current understanding of climate change.
Physicist at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland, Bernadette Rosati, told euronews: “Most people think climate change means global warming, but climate change can also mean the opposite.”
“Our 30,000-acre reservation is pretty dry because of drought,” said Lawrence Snow, Land Resources Manager for Utah’s Shivwits Band of Paiutes. “Wildfires in the last decade have burned half our acreage and changed the landscape. We’ve got less trees, and bark beetles are trying to kill off the ones we do have. Once the fires happened and took out the ground cover, major storms brought big flooding. Seasons have changed; winter hangs around now until May. It’s weird the way the weather is changing.”
