Last night's presentation at Fort Keogh was very informative, especially for those in agriculture trying to adapt to changing weather patterns.

For those who could not attend but are interested in reading "The Montana Climate Assessment," it is in digital format at: http://montanaclimate.org

There is also a link to an "Executive Summary" document which states in the Introduction:

"The Montana Climate Assessment (MCA) is an effort to synthesize, evaluate, and share credible and relevant scientific information about climate change in Montana with the citizens of the State. The motivation for the MCA arose from citizens and organizations in Montana who have expressed interest in receiving timely and pertinent information about climate change, including information about historical variability, past trends, and projections of future impacts as they relate to topics of economic concern. This first assessment reports on climate trends and their consequences for three of Montana's vital sectors: water, forests, and agriculture. We consider the MCA to be a sustained effort. We plan to regularly incorporate new scientific information, cover other topics important to the people of Montana, and address the needs of the state."

Here's another article and synopsis that should interest the agriculture community.

In conjunction with what you are reporting on Mary Catherine, there is an excellent book that would be helpful. "Land on Fire" , The New Reality of Wildfire in the West by Gary Ferguson. I was especially interested in that there are ways of projecting a fire season with the help of State and Federal Land Management.
