It’s Getting Hotter in Rio Grande by City-Tech Blogger Branden Harris

Rio Grande New Mexico has been affected by global warming lately, according to an article on Climate Central. Temperatures have risen at the Upper Rio Grande by approximately 2°F since the 1980s. This rapid rise was caused by natural weather variation and global warming. Scientists have discovered that the low efficiency with which Upper Rio Grande snowpacks have been turning into river water since then was unprecedented for at least 445 years. Fossil fuel pollution and deforestation have led to record breaking heat worldwide for 3 years straight, as well as intensifying droughts. Global warming is happening right now, it’s real and must be taken more seriously.
