Researchers Predict Snowfall in Southern California to Plunge by Midcentury

A study conducted by climate expert Alex Hall and colleagues from UCLA has warned that Los Angeles-area Mountains could see a decline up to 40% in snowfall by midcentury than the level noted at 20th century's end.

The projected change is being said to be an expected result of the current climate change. The researchers said that by the end of the century, the projected loss in snow could even worsen. However, the same depended on how the world reacted to the climate change.

It is being suggested that constant action to bring the level of global greenhouse gas emissions down may help in keeping yearly average snowfall level stable.

On the other hand, the undiminished continuation of emissions was likely to reduce Southern Californian snowfall by almost 66% by 2100.

The report said that Los Angeles was in an urgent need to act upon the climate change now. The AdaptLA framework has been created to dig innovative solutions that could preserve the quality of life for the region's next generation.

"Our choices matter. By the end of the century, there will be stark differences in how much snowfall remains, depending on whether we begin to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions", stated UCLA's Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences' professor, Hall.
