COLUMBIA RIVER - Salmon and trout, coldwater fish species that get the most attention and money in the Columbia/Snake river basin - are the most vulnerable to global warming, which a new scientific report calls "unequivocal."

"Salmon habitat loss would be most severe in Oregon and Idaho with potential losses exceeding 40 percent by 2090," according to "Climate Change Impacts on Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife," a report released last week by the Independent Scientific Advisory Board.
