CLIMATE CHANGE BAD NEWS FOR MIDWEST –

CLIMATE CHANGE BAD NEWS FOR MIDWEST – According to a report released Friday, the Midwest could face a grim long-term agricultural forecast due to climate change. Rising temperatures in the Midwest are projected to be the largest contributing factor to declines in U.S. agricultural productivity, with extreme heat wilting crops, upping incidence of crop disease, and posing a threat to livestock. In fact, temperatures are projected to climb more in the Midwest than in any other region. (Chicago Tribune)
