Western Water Assessment
Colorado's climate has warmed in recent decades, and climate models unanimously project this warming trend will continue into the future. Colorado experiences numerous climate related disasters, such as floods, droughts and wildfires, which will continue to occur in the future and pose serious hazards to public safety and the economy, regardless of the rate at which the climate warms. Key vulnerabilities are defined as "those aspects of the state's economy, resources, or populations that experience negative effects from climate variability or change, and that lack sufficient capacity to adapt to those effects."
