How Does Global Warming Affect You?
Consider the following climate indicators. Write down any changes you have personally noticed in recent years.
- Precipitation: Consider the rainfall and/or snowfall in your surroundings over the past few years. Does it seem to you that you are experiencing more, less, or about the same amount now than you did a few years ago?
- Ponds/streams/waterways: Have you observed any changes in the depth of ponds, rivers, or streams between this year and past years?
- Insects: Have you noticed any change in the number of insects where you live? Have you seen any new species that you've never seen in the past?
