Climate change threatens perch, other warm-water fish Great Lakes Echo (9/30) Fish living in mild-temperature regions benefit from some aspects of climate change, such as more water flowing through rivers. But the negative impacts outweigh the positive ones, according to a study recently published. Climate change affects lakes, walleye in complex ways Minnesota Publuc Radio (9/9) Global climate change continues delivering warmer temperatures and heavier rains to Minnesota, lakes and their inhabitants and scientists are still trying to figure out how a changing climate affects walleye and other species of fish. Green infrastructure: what is it? (9/8) Green infrastructure — natural and nature-based engineered systems that mimic natural processes — can be used to make communities better prepared and more resilient to extreme weather and coastal hazards that are becoming more frequent with climate change. COMMENTARY: Clean Power Plan is tremendous opportunity for Michigan Dearborn Press and Guide (8/11) The Clean Power Plan is an opportunity to become a cleaner, healthier state, and to take serious steps to address climate change, says Michigan state Representative Julie Plawecki. Climate change could make it hard for yellow perch to breed CBC News (8/4) The yellow perch living in Lake Erie have long faced challenges breeding after short, warm winters. Some scientists believe that climate change could cause further problems for the fish. Think Detroit has it rough now? Just wait ‘til climate change gets ahold of it Grist (6/9) Climate change will mean more extreme weather for Detroit: more powerful storms, more heat waves, more extreme cold and heavy snow.
Climate Change and Variability Program NOAA, Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) This research program brings together projects that examine the potential effects of climate change on the Great Lakes water resources and ecosystem.
Global Climate Change Resources Sustainable Minnesota Information on climate change in Minnesota and worldwide as well as plots of annual temperature trends.
Great Lakes Regional Climate Change Assessment The Great Lakes assessment is one of 19 regional assessments sponsored by the U.S. EPA and coordinated by the U.S. Global Change Research Program. The Great Lakes Regional Assessment team consists of more than 30 faculty, research associates, graduate and undergraduate students, and external collaborators from around the region.
Impacts of Climate Change on the Great Lakes Basin Environment Canada and NOAA The goal of this 1998 project is to improve our understanding of the complex interactions between climate variability and change, the environment, and social and economic systems so that informed regional adaptation responses can be developed for the sustainable management of the Basin.
The Potential Impacts of Global Warming on the Great Lakes Region Includes critical findings for the Great Lakes region from the first National Assessment of the Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change.
