New Kansas chief water regulator says climate change threatens his state's water
December 15, 2007

says climate change (also known as "global warming") is starting to affect water supplies
in the central part of the country, reducing snowpack and overall precipitation trends. Kansas, Colorado, and Nebraska
have been locked in some heated disputes over clean water
rights for the last few years, and those are unlikely to ease any time soon.
