A new study of trends in the Kansas climate predicts widespread effects from rising emissions of carbon dioxide.

University of Kansas climate scientists Nathan Brunsell and Johan Feddema released their findings on Tuesday.

The research says that with carbon dioxide emissions rising, Kansas is likely to see higher temperatures, stronger storms and drier conditions in the west over the next 90 years.

The scientists' report doesn't recommend specific policies. But Brunsell says the findings should lead to decisions on how to meet the expected changes in the state's climate.
