On Monday, Feb. 25, MinnPost’s Earth Journal Circle will present “Climate change: Right here, right now,” a substantive discussion of how Earth’s changing climate is showing up in Minnesota’s natural resources — and how policymakers are responding.
The discussion will feature leading experts Mark Seeley on weather patterns, Lee Frelich on forest health and J. Drake Hamilton on the policy landscape, each separating fact from fancy and forecasting what’s ahead. Earth Journal writer Ron Meador will moderate.
The event will take place at Hell’s Kitchen, 80 S. 9th Street in downtown Minneapolis, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The program begins at 6:15. An appetizer buffet, dessert and coffee are included. There will be a cash bar.
Reservation deadline is Wednesday, Feb. 20. Tickets at $15 for current MinnPost members, $25 for others, are available here.
