Climate change continues to impact the Great Lakes.  We’re at record high water levels, and the water temperatures are also on the rise.  It is changing shorelines, habitats, and the well-being of wildlife.  On WEMU’s "1st Friday Focus on the Environment," WEMU's David Fair and Michigan League of Conservation Voters executive director Lisa Wozniak explore the ramifications, impacts, and work being done to address these issues with Joel Brammeier, President and CEO of the Alliance for the Great Lakes.
