Climate change has arrived, with many regions of the nation experiencing more drought conditions, floods and wildfires.

That's the word from a White House report released this week. What does this mean for Utah's weather, tourism and agriculture? And how should the public and policymakers respond?

On Thursday at 12:15 p.m., state epidemiologist Allyn Nakashima, Salt Lake City sustainability director Vicki Bennett, climate scientist Jim Steenburgh and hydrologist Tim Bardsley join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about climate change impacts on water, the economy and human health and if it's too late to turn the tide.
