Abstract:

"People living in the Great Lakes region are already feeling the effects of changing climate. Shifts in seasonal tempatures and precipitation patterns could have dramatic impacts on the economy, ecology, and quality of life. In this illuminating and thorough volume, leading scholars address the challenge of preparing for climate change in this region, where decision makers from various sectors--government, agriculture, recreation, and tourism--must increasingly be aware of the needs to incorporate climate change into their short- and long-tem planning. The chapters in this book, written by some of the foremost climate change scholars in North America, outline the major trends in th e climate of the Great Lakes region, how humans might cope with the uncertainty of climate change impacts, and examples of on-the-ground projects that have addressed these issues.'-- p. [4] cover.
