[Nate writes…] This is the second post of a monthly series where I discuss things I observe in my life/travels that are likely to change in the future either fully or partially due to our changing climate. Climate is a more complicated word than most people realize. It’s the weather conditions in a place over a long period of time. “It’s raining today” or “Last week was really hot!” are examples of changing weather, while “Hurricanes have become a lot stronger over the past century” or “Wine country in Oregon is going to change dramatically in the next century” are examples of changing climate.
