Climate Change in Mongolia

(Mongolia) – As Daniel Grossman reports for Public Radio International’s The World: “Mongolia’s nomadic herders make up roughly half the country’s population, but their traditional lifestyle is seriously threatened by climate change.  ..Grossman recently met with a family of nomads who are being affected by the changes and an American scientist who’s chronicling them.” The sudden hot spells and cold spells have changed the rain patterns. “The herders say this is a huge problem. ‘If the grass is not growing well,’ Hurelchuluun asks, ‘then what the animals will eat? If the animals die, what’s the future for us?’”
