Thanks to a poor winter and long-term drought, New Mexico's largest reservoir, Elephant Butte, is now at 3.2 percent capacity.
At 1.5 degrees of warming, compared with pre-industrial levels, as much as 90 per cent of the world's coral reefs will die, and virtually all would be lost if temperatures rose two degrees, or about twice the increase so far.
Established energy policies include the Clean Energy Fund, the Renewable Energy Target, the Emissions Reduction Fund, the Snowy Hydro 2.0 project and a forestry plan to plant one billion trees.
"His disrespect and dismissal of [the IPCC report] is outrageous and risky", Rep. Suzanne Bonamici (D-Ore.), the top Democrat on the House Subcommittee on the Environment, said in a phone interview.
He has long ignored or cast doubt on the scientific community's consensus that human activity is causing risky climate change, and has frequently exhibited a profound misunderstanding of the science behind it. The report also stated that 70-85 percent of energy needs to be supplied by renewable sources by 2050 to stay at the 1.5C target - right now, renewable energy accounts for about 25 percent.
While the U.S.is on target to meet the previous goal, the United Nations is still stressing that more action is needed. Together, higher temperatures and precipitation changes will decrease soil moisture and increase drought. The IPCC report states that the hottest days of summer in mid-latitudes could increase by 4°C under a 2°C global increase, suggesting that heat waves here in southern BC could easily reach 44°C. President Trump has previously mocked the Paris Agreement and is actively trying to withdraw from it.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment. They say it excludes scientists who downplay the effect of burning fossil fuels.
However, the IPCC report's authors said the world would face severe consequences if the great bulk of fossil fuels including coal, oil and gas, weren't left in the ground.
"But it has not been very easy to get support for carbon taxation and things like that because it is asking people in counties like ours to pay now for the benefit of those 50 years in the future as well as other parts of the world".
Decades ago, Congress refused to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, which represented the first step toward meaningful worldwide action on climate in 1992. The country is also 13th biggest emitter of greenhouse gases (including carbon dioxide). They serve as an example of the interconnectedness of climate change impacts, a characteristic that creates interacting, compounding negative effects.
