Climate Change is Both a Global and Regional Issue
A new report from the Nature Conservancy sheds more light on the fact that climate change is a regional issue. Rural Midwestern states will face the greatest consequences of climate change, with Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa expected to face the steepest rise in temperature, according to the report.
