How are you sensing climate change?

Earlier springs and hotter summers have allowed red algae to bloom in New Jersey's recreational waterways. For example, Spruce Run Reservoir, which is normally filled with swimmers and boaters, was closed for the entire 2019 season, and so far it looks like 202 will be a repeat. I don't know the names of other lakes and reservoirs, but I know that there are others across the state with the same problem, attributable to the warmth.
