A Boston publication reports that "The federal government yesterday awarded the University of Massachusetts Amherst a multimillion-dollar grant to host one of eight centers around the country to study the local effects of climate change.
The Northeast Climate Science Center will study how climate change affects ecosystems, wildlife, water, and other resources from the Great Lakes to Maine and down to Missouri. The $7.5 million grant over five years will sponsor research at UMass Amherst as well as at institutions in Wisconsin, Minnesota, New York, and Massachusetts."
This is the seventh such center that Ken Salazar (in the photo with Barry O), head of the Dept. of the Interior, has 'established.'
Only one comment (so far) follows yet another story on this topic, and it's right on.
