FARMINGTON -- Maine is going to look a lot different in 100 years if climate change trends continue on the same upward trajectory.
Moose may all but disappear from the forests, replaced by migrations of white-tail deer.
The forests themselves will probably be taken over by trees found today as far south as Maryland, rather than the red spruce that make Maine's woods unique.
Even black-capped chickadees, the state bird, may start to head farther north for cooler climes.
These are just a few of the potential changes in store for Maine according to many scientists, who have been predicting what will happen in various parts of the world over the next century if global warming doesn't slow down.
The drastic differences in global warming's effects will ultimately hinge on human's choices to reduce their impact on the otherwise natural climate change cycles, Barton told the audience.
"We still have choices to make," he said.

They think that the only reason people don’t believe in AGW is they haven’t told the lie enough yet.
In a hundred years...because of global warming...Mainers will start speaking with a southern accent. They also will walk around with their underwear on backwards. And I believe that most Mainer women will be wearing tube-tops all year-round.
Maine (and everywhere else) looked quite differently 100 yrs ago, too...... Climate comes and goes. I don't believe man can do much, if anything to change that.
The orioles, the red winged blackbird and the cardinals don't hang there anymore...but the damn pigeons are still around along with the tree rats aka squirrels.
Let’s see, how do I proper comment on this...
Is it: “BS!”
Chances are equally good that in 100 years
Maine will be covered in an Ice sheet 50 feet
thick, all the great skiing will be in Georgia
and people will be going to northern Florida
to watch the leaves turn.
There is no upward trajectory. I stopped there.
And all the little squirrels and birds will be gone forever. Lisp, Lisp. And the little flowers will all dry up and blooww away. And the big big trees will all fall down and go boom. The only thing thats going to happen in the next 100 years is this SOCIALIST MORON is going to be buried 6 ft under and nobody will have to listen to his SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT HALLUCINATIONS about the AGW/IPCC CO2 scam anymore.
to late to == too late to
I stopped at the title.
Thanks for the trip down Memory Lane: articles like this were all the rage about 25 years ago. “The Morning Sentinel” is asleep at the wheel.
What upward trajectory is that? Seems I read the temp has been pretty stable for the last 100 years.
We have to start killing every Human Being on the planet to save Maines tree’s.
In a hundred years Maine will still have Republican Senators voting with Democrats.
My heart bleeds for Maine.-——not
How about choosing not to buy into the hype and hysteria while Al Gore gets rich off his scam and laughs at all of you on his way to the bank?
That is to say... none.
Ask your average high schooler who has been taught this garbage for 8 or 10 years what they think of global warming and they'll tell you it is the absolute truth.
You really have to strecth things for the QGW croud... from the NOAA web site -

Climate changes, even before evil SUVs were invented...:^)
Lib solution? Take away choices!
Except abortion, of course.
1. Maine has more citizens on the dole than on private-sector payrolls.
2. Maine is so eco-friendly that billboards are illegal. When you drive up the interstate through Bangor you would be hard pressed to find billboards advertising food or lodging. It’s all a secret in Maine.
3. Maine has ‘Vacationland’ on license plates. But Mainers do not want any outsiders coming up there on vacation. They just want outsiders to send their tax money through Obama’s administration to keep their welfare checks funded.
4. The professor is worried about the trees? Trees are a cash crop. How ignorant is this professor? Why doesn’t he
go to the midwest and give speeches to save the corn?
The warmists like to bring up the situation of the polar bear as being perilous due to AGW. What many people don’t know is that polar bears were originally brown bears who migrated northwards and adapted to life in the Arctic. What does that mean? It means that even if the the planet and the Arctic get warmer, the polar bear can adapt to the situation same as his ancestors adapted to colder weather.
When is somebody going to ask a “climate change” person a simple question:
Why doesn’t somebody stop the tornados ..?? If people are causing the weather changes .. then we should be able to find out who those people are, why they’re causing all the wind and just make them stop it, right ..??
But .. if “people” can’t stop the weather (tornados), where is the logic that “people” caused it ..??
Be sure you’re seated before they answer!
Was it P. T. Barnum who famously said, “There’s a David F. Robinson born every minute”?
The last one suffices...
“Moose may all but disappear from the forests, replaced by migrations of white-tail deer.”
Then riddle me this. Why are moose moving south into Colorado over the past 20 years as the climate warms? And, they have driven white tail deer out.
It was a “progressive” modest proposal. ;-)
