Tuesday breakfast to examine impact of climate change on Minnesota wildlife and habitat

The effect of climate change, or climate instability, on Minnesota’s habitat and wildlife will be the topic of the next Environment Minnesota “Green Ideas and Ham” breakfast Tuesday in Northeast Minneapolis.

Organizers say:

“From moose die-offs to the loss of the conifer forest, global warming will have big impacts on Minnesota’s North Woods. Scientists say that if we continue emitting carbon at this rate, Minnesota will look more like Kansas and Nebraska by the end of the century.”

Featured speakers will be:

  • Olivia LeDee, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources policy expert
  • Jason Dinsmore, National Wildlife Federation regional representative and wildlife expert
  • Bill Droessler, energy program director, Izaak Walton League of America

The 8-9:30 a.m.breakfast is at the Red Stag Supper Club, 509 1st Av. NE, Minneapolis.

Cost is $15 with online reservations requested.

    Before tomorrow

    I suggest that we distribute winter coats to all of the moose that we can track down.
