Script – Final

BILLBOARD

Music: In

Greg Dalton: This is Climate One, a conversation about powering America’s future. I’m Greg Dalton. As rising temperatures melt mountain snowpack, skiers are finding their favorite runs getting shorter. But there’s a lot more at stake:

Porter Fox: When snow starts to disappear, there is this line of dominoes that people have seen out in the western U.S. already with the wildfires and the pine beetles that come from a lack of snowpack.

Greg Dalton: And melting snowpack will affect our cities too.

Andrew Guzman: We have built up our entire global civilization on the premise that the rivers will flow where they've been flowing for the last 250,000 years. And that won't be true anymore.

Greg Dalton: Mountain meltdown. Up next on Climate One.
