How will climate change affect Yellowstone National Park?

That’s the question posed by the headline over this New York Times science-section article. Yellowstone, of course, is only one of more than 500 units within the National Park System.

And then there are disasters like Glacier National Park – park created to showcase glaciers which are nearly gone now, thanks to human activities.
