Tim Folger's feature article for the December 2020 National Geographic focuses on the Great Lakes and Tim's assignment was to write on the Great Lakes begins with the 1969 Cuyahoga River fire. "Great Lakes Now: So kind of jumping off of that in your article, you do explore a lot of the changes that were happening. Can you explain what the biggest changes were that the lakes were experiencing? How did you decide which to cover in your article? TF: Yeah, that was a challenge with such a complex system – the largest freshwater system in the world, what do you write about? But there are really three big problems that became obvious as soon as you at start looking into the story.  No. 1 is climate change is kind of the overarching problem that makes all the other problems worse, and if we don’t address climate change, all the other problems will be very difficult to remedy. So that was No. 1."  Join Zoom Meeting - https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81256300336 . Meeting ID: 812 5630 0336  Meeting ID: 812 5630 0336. Sent to WNPJ by Peace Action WI - info@peaceactionwi.org
