How Could Climate Change Affect New Hampshire's Maple Syrup Industry?
Environmental advocates say they hope to raise awareness about climate change by highlighting its projected effects on New Hampshire's maple syrup industry.
The Climate Impacts on Maple Syrup Breakfast takes place Wednesday morning at Keene State College.
Among those scheduled to speak is Steven Roberge, a forester with UNH Cooperative Extension. He says climate change appears to be affecting the weather cycle of above-freezing daytime temperatures and below-freezing nighttime conditions that help sap flow in maple trees.
