Abstract

Climate change and the shortage of natural resources are hot topics throughout the world. According to researchers, global warming is impacting the world in diverse ways, such as floods, droughts, stronger hurricanes and severe heat waves (Effects on People and the Environment, 2016; Richins and Scarinci, 2009). These diverse problems are affecting the world, even down to state and local levels in the United States (Manson, 2012). For example, in southern Utah, only residents and farmers who have water rights dating back to before the 1900’s will be able to use it for their fields and livestock (Press, 2014). One major industry that is primarily impacted by climate change is the Hotel & Lodging Industry (Brody, 2014; Jones, Hillier, and Comfort, 2016; Aragon-Correa, Martin-Tapia, and de la Torre-Ruiz, 2015; Singh and Nair, 2015). In the state of Utah, there are several hotel brands to accommodate the needs of travelers and decrease the impacts to the climate.
