Climate change is taking place on the Kenai Peninsula, slowly but surely.
Over the last 100 years, climate change has been affecting the Peninsula, according to a presentation Thursday night from Dr. John Morton, supervisory biologist at the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge.
Morton said climate change has its own impacts, and can’t be looked at in a vacuum.
“It’s the addition of climate change on top of all the other stressors that we have on the system,” Morton said. “Urbanization, pollution and land use changes — all those things.”
