Investigating problems and crafting solutions

Finding global warming solutions. Extreme weather events lead to loss of life and billions of dollars in economic damage. What’s more, scientists predict that global warming could increase the frequency of such events in the future. Our report, "Global Warming and Extreme Weather," shined a light on what could become "the new normal" if we fail to avert the worst effects of global warming.


Educating the public and making our voices heard

Building community involvement. Minnesotans understand the importance of protecting our beautiful lakes and amazing forests, and we're helping communities discuss the best ways to go about it. Dozens join us at our monthly "Green Ideas and Ham" breakfast forum to learn, share and get involved on the most pressing environmental issues of our day.
