Climate change is already affecting Wisconsinites. I have reported on Ojibwe people in Northern Wisconsin and their reliance on wild rice, but more frequent extreme weather events tied to climate change are disrupting wild rice beds, threatening a source of food and culture for the Ojibwe. How should Wisconsin respond to climate change?
- Here is the NBC 12 story on efforts to restore wild rice in Northern Wisconsin.
- Here is a Wisconsin DNR report on the science of climate change.
- The DNR has also compiled information on the effects of climate change in Wisconsin.
