Study Says Global Warming May Wreak Havoc on Yellowstone Region

"The last decade was the greater Yellowstone region's hottest on record, according to a study released Tuesday by a pair of environment-oriented nonprofits."

"The study's findings show that temperatures over the past 10 years were 1.4 degrees above the region's 20th century average. Summers, in particular, averaged 2.3 degrees higher than summers in the past century.

And if worldwide emissions of heat-trapping gases are not reduced, the warming will continue with disastrous effects, Stephen Saunders, president of the Rocky Mountain Climate Organization, said Tuesday."
