Global Warming and Great Lakes

Among other environmental markers in our area, the Great Lakes will be affected by Climate Change in our area. Learning about the effects, instead of trying to ignore them (for this is science, not a radical belief system) will help us understand how we might curb the effects and learn to live with the potential changes:

Read: Great Lakes Restoration & the Threat of Global Warming “The Earth’s climate is warming, and the impacts are already being observed in the Great Lakes—the source of nearly a fifth of the world’s surface freshwater. This report synthesizes current climate change science and presents the likely impacts warming temperatures will have on the Great Lakes, people and wildlife. It also provides recommendations for curbing global warming while at the same time preserving the resilience and adaptive capacity of the Great Lakes ecosystem.” --from Healthy Lakes, Healthy Lives
