    How do you think climate change will affect your region’s water supply? Think about the effects of weather, storms, salinity, and sea level rise, among other changes. How can you find out more about climate change’s impact to your region's water?

    Climate change could change our region by possibly drying up some of the Great Lakes. Possible floods could change the freshness of the Great Lakes and limiting our drinkable water and destroying crops limiting our food. I could look at impacts of climate change online at NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) or at NASA's site about climate change.
