Public Forum: Clean Energy, Climate and Health

July 9, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

A free public forum with polar explorer Will Steger and Fresh Energy’s J. Drake Hamilton.
Minnesota is on a clean energy path that is bringing benefits to human health and our air, water, and natural resources.
But our work is not done. Join us for a public discussion about the costs of burning coal to our climate, natural resources, economy, and health, and the opportunities for clean energy in Minnesota. Hear Will Steger’s vivid, firsthand account of climate change with stunning photographs from his expeditions. J. Drake Hamilton, science policy director at Fresh Energy, will describe effective clean energy and clean air solutions that benefit our economy.
The forum will provide information on upcoming decisions about Xcel Energy’s Sherco 1 and 2 coal plants and the opportunities for public comment to help move Minnesota to an innovative, clean energy future based on more solar, wind, and energy efficiency.
