Autumn is far more than a transitional season ushering us from summer to winter. However, this year in the upper Midwest, this season has felt more like summer, at least so far. Uncharacteristically mild temperatures and the delayed onset of the color show from our large swaths of deciduous forests point to the disturbing impacts of global climate change. In many parts of the northern hemisphere, summer is expanding, arriving earlier and exiting later. More than a disappointment or inconvenience, the impacts from climate change are growing more apparent and alarming. While each of us must do our small part to mitigate these unwanted changes, we must also demand that our politicians and business leaders address this emerging existential crisis.
