"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.
