Climate change could hit Berkshires in Massachusetts and Connecticut economy hard

The Berkshires are a small mountain chain and community located in western Mass and Connecticut (near me!). It’s widely known for its picturesque New Englandy towns with lots of arts, music, hiking, skiing, hunting, fishing, apple picking, and and nice things.

The local paper, called the Berkshire Eagle, posted this really well written piece on how the economy will be impacted by climate change. The locals have not been responding well to the article, but I admire it for being as straightforward as you can get.

      I wonder if this homesteading five-year plan should be relocated further north. Climate change will hit more...

      Sidenote: The locals don’t respond well to many things. Most of them are idiots.
