Climate Change and Fall Foliage: Not a Good Match

Green Lifestyle  (tags: environment, forests, fall, foliage, climate change, protection )

It's admittedly not on a par with the direct threats posed by rising seas or melting icecaps or extreme weather, but with autumn now upon us, it's worth noting that climate change could also affect the brilliant foliage that paints forests

Fewer left on the canopy to display color - sad! With all the heat and dryness, and then extreme cold the trees are bound to under stress.
Noted with thanks Cher.

How sad. One of the most beautiful things about autumn is the colors of the fall foliage.

This would be a great shame for many reasons - some of which we might only find out in a few years' time!

Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
Chief Seattle, 1854
When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover
You cannot eat money.
Cree Prophecy
Treat the earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors
We borrow it from our Children.
Ancient Indian Proverb
The price of anything is the amount of life exchanged for it.
