UMD hosts climate change conference, focuses on Duluth

DULUTH, MN– UMD hosted a conference showcasing how climate change could impact Duluth in the future.

Scientists and community members gathered for the ‘Our Climate Futures: Meeting the Challenges in Duluth’ conference, which focuses on future planning and how Minnesota communities can adapt to climate change.

Harvard’s Jesse Keenan, a member of the U-S delegation to the International Panel on Climate Change was the keynote speaker.

Following his address, Duluth Mayor Emily Larson sat on a panel to hear questions on how future climate could affect Duluthians.

Conference Organizer, Patrick Schoff says, “all of this is a product of planning. So our idea is that we need to start planning climate change into these plans. Start it now, continue the conversation.”

Sunday at ten, during Your Green Life, we hear more from Duluth representatives about the importance of Duluth’s current and future climate.
