The Impacts of Climate Change on Wisconsin Waters
The future is now. Climate change has been occurring in Wisconsin for over fifty years and will continue to change into the future. It is already having impacts on the water of Wisconsin and the ecology of our State.
A meteorologist will show us the changes in weather/climate and what we can expect in the years to come. Then a water scientist will reveal the effects of a warming climate on the waters of Wisconsin now and in the next several decades.
