Maine's climate change future

This chart, from the NY Times, show how hot America will be in 2100. Note Maine's status on the low side. This supports something we have been arguing for some time: Maine needs to expect, and plan wisely for, a significant population growth thanks to climate change. Among the things to consider is a new urbanism which places high value on nearby agricultural and open space. Because of the worse weather elsewhere, Maine is going to have to grow more of its own food and needs to plan for it.
