ELA research shows climate change impacting lake trout size
Warming water from climate change is beginning to encroach on the habitat of Northwestern Ontario’s cold water fish.
Research conducted at the Experimental Lakes Area shows the region’s temperature has warmed 0.4 C over each of the last five decades. Shorter winters are heating surface water and delaying lake trout spawning.
The runoff from increasing summer rain is causing a tea-like discolouration, affecting the water’s heat distribution and compounding the change.
Added together, fish biologist Lee Hrenchuk can see consequences for aquatic ecosystems beginning to show. – Tbnewswatch

So? Look, the mainstream media is blaming everything on climate change. OK..THE DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Come up with some solutions!
Right now, nobody wants to do anything that costs them money. Nobody wants to do anything that will negatively impact all those wonderful conveniences that they have grown accustomed to having.
