Changing Climate, Changing Park Resources
For a closer look at the Adirondack Park see Curt Stager and Mary Thill’s work for the Nature Conservancy Climate Change and the Champlain Basin: What natural resource managers can expect and do and Jerry Jenkins’ (with the Wildlife Conservation Society) terrific study Climate Change in the Adirondacks. Other Adirondack climate change resources include Adirondack Climate and Energy Action Planning ADKCAP.
Curt Stager, of Paul Smith’s College, also takes a long look into the future at the impacts of climate change with his book Deep Future: The Next 100,000 Years of Life on Earth. The New York Natural Heritage Program also published Vulnerability of At-risk Species to Climate Change in New York that details potential impacts to the most vulnerable species across the state and Adirondacks.
Climate Change Resources
Read Bill Mckibben’s article in Rolling Stone Magazine The Reckoning: Global Warming’s Terrifying New Math. Nobody tells it better than Mckibben in Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet about the impacts of climate change that have already changed the planet and ways forward to survive.
