Report: SD Should Prepare For Climate Change


A new report on the impacts of climate change shows we’re in for more of the same in South Dakota.

The 2011 Missouri River flooding, the 2012 drought, the 2013 ice storms and blizzards--all these events are projected to be more common in the future. 

The report predicts the changing climate will also have increasing economic impacts.  Sectors like agriculture, emergency management, wildlife management, and resource management must prepare and adapt.
