Climate Change and Snow Melt

In the winter, snow falls on the mountains. In the spring and summer, it gradually melts providing year round clean water. When you get even mild global warming, snow starts later in the season and stops sooner. In spring, the snow melts faster creating floods. By summer there is only a trickle of water left. This means agriculture has to cut back and city dwellers have to live with water restrictions. That means higher food prices.
