Global Warming Threatens Great Lakes

The Union of Concerned Scientists issues a report outlining potential problems for the entire region.

"More extreme heat events and heavier rain and snow will present even more challenges to cities and farms in the Great Lakes region than previously thought, according to an update on climate change by the Union of Concerned Scientists.

Heat and precipitation extremes, both envisioned as likely results of a warming climate, could harm agriculture through untimely flooding, increased pests, threats to plant structure and stress on livestock and dairy animals. Heavy rains on increasingly developed areas could produce more urban flooding, while more stagnant warm air masses would increase the severity of urban air pollution incidences, according to the update."
