On Tuesday, June 25th at 8:00 a.m., we’re having our last Green Ideas & Ham breakfast forum before a summer “break.” This month, as we make our way out of a notably snowy spring, we’ll be discussing global warming and the weird weather that citizens across the region are experiencing. It may be heating up, but it’s not too late to RSVP and save your place for the last breakfast forum of the season!
We’re thrilled to have Mark Seeley as our guest speaker. Mark is Extension Climatologist and Professor in the Department of Soil, Water, and Climate at the University of Minnesota and weekly commentator on Minnesota Public Radio’s “Morning Edition” news program. Mark will join us for a discussion on extreme weather and our changing climate. Dr. Seeley has helped Twin Cities Public Television produce award winning documentaries, edited numerous children’s books on weather and climate, and he has taught atmospheric science to K-12 science teachers for over 20 years.
We know many of you agree that global warming is the most pressing environmental problem of our time. Left unchecked, its impacts will include everything from deadly heat waves and drought, devastating extreme weather events like Hurricane Sandy, rising sea levels threatening coastal communities, and plant and animal species going extinct. It is far past time state and national leaders take action to stop the worst effects of global warming. The Obama administration has proposed establishing first-ever carbon pollution standards — but we need to get the discussion going here at home to make sure that these standards are finalized.
As always, the event costs $15 for each attendee ($5 to Environment Minnesota and $10 to Red Stag Supperclub).
When: Tuesday, June 25, 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Doors open at 7:30!
Where: Red Stag Supperclub, 509 1st Ave NE, Minneapolis MN
