Climate change has already arrived in Illinois and the Midwest in the form of wetter weather with more heavy rain events. By mid-century, we will likely experience temperatures 4 to 5 degrees warmer. These changing conditions will have significant impacts on humans and the environment. In this talk, we will review what’s changing and why, as well as look at some adaptation measures.
