Kathie Dello was brought in Thursday to address the City Club of Central Oregon on how climate change is affecting our region.

 

One of the audience members asked how global warming is affecting the ski industry.

 

"Snow pack is declining and it will continue to decline.  There will always be snow at the higher elevations.  Some people say there will be no snow at Mt. Hood.  There will always be snow at the higher elevations of Mt. Hood, but I would be concerned about the lower elevations.  In part because it wasn't snowing or raining, but we also had warmer temperatures at higher elevations."

 

Dello says there is still time to act, but we need to have the political will to do so.  She says the most effective change on this issue occurs at the local and state level.
