E-M:/ Climate Change in the Great Lakes

Michigan State University 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.  These 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. 


The report summarizing them is available at: http://www.environment.msu.edu/climatechange/2008/CC-key_messages.pdf. More information -- including conference presentations – is available at www.environment.msu.edu/climatechange .
