The Case of the Vanishing Sugar Maples

This is an amazing video! Martha Carlson is a farmer raising sugar maples, a teacher, scientist and now a climate activist. she explains that the rise in temperatures in the last three decades is matched by a parallel drop in sugar content of the sap, trees dying early and the possibility of maple sugars vanishing by 2100. We all know that correlation does not mean causation but the problem is evident, “on page 2” as she puts it, and it is time to find a solution.
