Climate Change In The Great Lakes

Jun 3: Michigan State University (MSU) has held two recent conferences on “Climate Change in the Great Lakes: Decision Making Under Uncertainty,” with diverse attendees including researchers, decision makers, educators, activists, businesspeople, and citizens. During the conferences, participants identified key messages for decision makers: areas where there is consensus or at least very broad agreement. The key messages relate to (a) effects of climate change in the region; (b) ways of making climate-related decisions given uncertainty; (c) research needs; and (d) prescriptions for action.
