Climate Change Wisconsin: What it Means for Us

What does current science say about climate change and the potential impacts upon Northeastern Wisconsin?

Public presentation:
Tuesday, December 1, 2009 - 7:00 p.m. in MAC Hall 208

Faculty: (contact for more information)

Participating Students:

"There's a lot of public misunderstanding and we think it's important to look at real impacts by examining what might be termed the consensus among scientists," says Michael Kraft, political science chair and professor of Public and Environmental Affairs. "The students will cover the most current science projections related to climate change for the state and especially Northeastern Wisconsin, and potential environmental, social and economic impacts."

Portions of the presentation cover the University's development of a Climate Change Action Plan.

Visit the Climate Change Wisconsin Facebook group, designed to present credible information related to climate change forecasts, facilitate public education, and encourage public involvement.
