Climate Change Alters Life at Fed’s Jackson Hole Conference

When officials of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City sought a location for an annual economic symposium in 1982, they chose Jackson Hole, Wyoming, for a simple reason: It had fly-fishing.

Now, though, warmer waters in Jackson Lake and the Snake River it empties into have led the Park Service to urge anglers to restrict their fishing to the morning hours.

It is just one example of how the consequences of climate change are now in plain view to Fed officials during their annual summer symposium in Jackson Hole.
