Study: Climate change is causing US NPs to warm twice as fast as rest of country

Climate change is having an outsized impact on national parks in the U.S., according to research conducted by scientists at the National Park Service, the University of California Berkeley and the University of Wisconsin Madison.

In a paper released today, the researchers take the first comprehensive look at shifts in climate at all 417 sites managed by the National Park Service. The study, published in Environmental Research Letters, details changes that have occurred since the late 1800s and projects how the climate might further transform by the end of this century.
