A Wisconsin climate change ally sends this item which actually underscores a prediction that Southern Wisconsin's climate was headed for Kansas norms.

Now, back to what my source sent me today:
"I am not awake in the morning, so I need coffee. To have coffee, I need milk. So I open our refrigerator this morning and, lo and behold, a mosquito is buzzing about. This is Wisconsin. The mosquitoes are coming inside to hide in the refrigerator because it is 70 fricking degrees outside on November 5th."
"A little fill here and there may seem to be nothing to become excited about. But one fill, though comparatively inconsequential, may lead to another, and another, and before long a great body may be eaten away until it may no longer exist. Our navigable waters are a precious natural heritage, once gone, they disappear forever," wrote the Wisconsin Supreme Court in its 1960 opinion resolving Hixon v. PSC and buttressing The Public Trust Doctrine, Article IX of the Wisconsin State Constitution.
