Guest: Zachary Zobel, Graduate Student, Department of Atmospheric Sciences, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign  Climate change won’t impact all regions of the world at the same time. For example, our studios sit at the base of the Wasatch mountain range, and those mighty peaks will actually delay the effects of climate change, according to research out of the University of Illinois, where new research methods allow climate scientists to predict what climate change will look like basically in your backyard. This could really help city managers and local utilities plan for the future.
