Climate Change Institute report cited in BDN op-ed

The Bangor Daily News cited a 2015 University of Maine Climate Change Institute report on Maine’s climate future in the op-ed “Reducing Maine’s carbon emissions now will pay off later.” The report found flood zones in Maine have expanded, the habitat for lobsters is moving north, and ticks and Lyme disease have an increasing presence in the state, according to the article, which used this evidence to support an argument for reducing carbon emissions to mitigate these and other effects of climate change.
