There are many current stresses for residents of the Great Plains, including market variability, economic volatility, and market pressures. Climate change is just one additional stress that is increasingly affecting Great Plains residents. Projections of climate change in the region include increased temperatures, mainly minimum temperatures, and increased precipitation in many areas. These changes have the possibility of affecting, either positively or negatively, many sectors in the Great Plains, including agriculture, ranching and livestock, natural systems, and water.
