What are the predictions?

A doubling in CO2 concentrations is predicted to cause a 6 to 8°C warming throughout most of Alberta. This will cause a decrease in soil moisture, predicted to be between 30 and 40 percent for eastern and southern Alberta, and 20 to 30 percent for western Alberta. The graph below shows the modeled temperature for east-central Alberta for the period 2010 - 2099.
