A newly published report holds some disturbing news for farming communities across the Midwest and Northeast of the U.S.: Climate change is here and it will bring some serious changes.
According to the 1,100-plus-page National Climate Assessment — published by researchers at the University of Michigan — in the coming decades, climate change will likely lead to drastic changes in the Midwest climate. According to researchers, the region will face an increase in the number of rainstorms and floods, while existing risks to the Great Lakes will be exacerbated by an increase in the number of intense heatwaves.
