A new study warns that climate change could devastate the economies of states like New Hampshire that rely heavily on winter tourism.

After a rough winter season last year, New Hampshire tourism officials predict nearly seven million people will visit the state between now and the end of February.

Those figures come from the Institute for New Hampshire Studies.
