MSU Extension offers new MontGuide on climate science in Montana
BOZEMAN – Montana State University Extension has published a new MontGuide factsheet, which details weather and climate in Montana.
The newly released MontGuide explains the difference between weather and climate. The color, four-page guide includes definitions of weather and climate, compares weather forecasting versus climate projections, defines the greenhouse effect, and details climate change through time.
“There are several misconceptions related to climate and climate change,” Fabian Menalled, MSU cropland weed Extension specialist and co-author of the guide, said. “We wrote this MontGuide to provide Montana citizens with easy-to-access, science-based information on a relevant topic. We hope the information presented will help everyone in Montana understand the causes and implications of climate change.”
A copy of “Climate Science 101” can be obtained at no charge from local county Extension agents or it can be printed for free from the web at http://store.msuextension.org/Products/Climate-Science-101-for-Montana__MT201614AG.aspx.
