LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- An environmental scientist says Utah is in the midst of a warming trend.

Roger S. Pulwarty, one of the lead writers of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in 2007, says experts are just beginning to understand the nature of the climate change. But, he says, there is little doubt that human influences are to blame.

His comments came during a speech at Utah State University's Spring Runoff Conference on Monday. Even as a morning snowstorm had Utahns reaching for their winter coats again, Pulwarty was predicting that residents will run their air conditioning more in coming years.
