A report from the Environmental Law and Policy Center (EPLC) finds that increasing temperatures from climate change have already caused severe weather and flooding in the Great Lakes region, which contains 21 percent of the world’s fresh water. In addition to infrastructural damage, flooding overloads water treatment, increases pollutants in the water supply, decreases agricultural production, and harms ecosystems in the region. EPLC, a grantee, projects problems associated with climate change will continue to worsen as the temperature increases.
