New report shows effects of climate change in California     The report says nearly three-fourths of California's hydroelectric power is produced by facilities located at altitudes above 1,000 feet and typically rely on small snowmelt-fed reservoirs, thus making them more vulnerable to the increased temperatures.     CEC says wildfires will likely increase as well, creating burned landscapes and silt that will erode into reservoirs, thereby decreasing hydropower capacity even more.

Fire Safe Landscaping A fire safe landscape uses fire resistant plants that are strategically planted to resist the spread of fire to your home. Choose plant species that resist ignition such as rockrose, iceplant and aloe. Fire-resistant shrubs include hedging roses, bush honeysuckles, currant, cotoneaster, sumac and shrub apples. Plant hardwood, maple, poplar and cherry trees that are less flammable than pine, fir and other conifers.

(AP) — Montana's worst fire season in years is expected to scorch the drought-stricken landscape well into fall, long after the state's firefighting reserves run out thanks to politicians diverting millions of dollars to fill a budget shortfall.  The state's financial worries come as forecasters for the National Interagency Fire Center predict that eastern Montana, southern California and the western Dakotas could be exposed to major wildfire threats into October or November.  A wet winter…
