The global warming is real. When you go to school near a lake that freezes during winter, the lake is your everyday's weather forecast and the best evidence of climate change.
Will there be more frozen lakes?
My school sits next to the Lake Mendota in Madison, Wisconsin. It is expected to have winter over 6 months every year here. While beautiful in the summer, most of the time the Lake Mendota is a frozen beauty. In 2017, however, the lake wasn’t completely frozen till late December. Students here witness the climate change, through interacting with the lake. During the coldest months of January, February and March in 2018, the lake had been melting several times due to the temperature fluctuations. I have been documenting the changing frozen lake with my camera, through a variety of human interaction with the lake in different times. As the global warming continues and the winter becomes warmer each year, will we still be able to have fun walking on the frozen lake one day?
