LANSING – A new study finds the Great Lakes region is warming up faster than the rest of the United States and Canada. The Chicago-based Environmental Law and Policy Center commissioned the study, which found the mean temperature in the region rose by one-point-six degrees while the rest of the country warmed by one-point-two degrees from 1901 to 1960 and from 1985 to 2016. Researchers say it should be a call to action for Congress to start working on climate change solutions.
