Abstract:

Wisconsin residents have a strong connection with the outdoors. Global warming, however, threatens many of the natural landscapes and outdoor activities that Wisconsin residents hold dear, including the composition and health of the state's forests, pastimes such as ice fishing and cross-country skiing, and the future of the state's dairy industry. An Unfamiliar State summarizes the latest scientific findings about the likely impacts of global warming on "Natural Wisconsin" and suggests ways the state can reduce the threat.
