(1:19 - 1:43) "Glacier National Park is an excellent natural laboratory to examine the effects of climate change. This area is actually warming at 2 to 3 times the rate of the global average rise in air temperatures. These increased air temperatures are decreasing the snowpack in the glaciers in the high country and increasing disturbance events like wildfires that we're experiecing."
