America’s National Parks Are Drying Up Faster Than We Thought
According to the latest study done by IOPScience, temperatures across America’s 417 protected areas and national parks have increased by 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit. The increase in temperature is reportedly twice the amount that the rest of the country is seeing as a whole – increasing a cause for concern.
The IOPScience study shows that not only have temperatures and aridity increased in the country’s national parks, while a decrease in precipitation in the parks was down an entire 12% this year. The 12% decrease may not seem like much, but considering the fact that the rest of the country only saw a 3% decrease speaks volumes.
