Climate Change: What It Means for Wisconsin's Economy and Natural Resources

An informational forum co-hosted by Wisconsin Reps. Jeff Mursau and Fred Clark
Wednesday, December 11, 2013 - 9:30am
Watch video of the forum at WisconsinEye.orgThe Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters co-hosted an informational forum with Representative Jeff Mursau and Representative Fred Clark at the Wisconsin State Capitol. At the request of the representatives, the Academy recommended a group of Wisconsin experts who could share their knowledge about how a changing climate is affecting Wisconsin, with the aim of beginning the discussion of climate change impacts on the state—especially impacts on farming, water, forestry, and wildlife.
 
As an independent, nonpartisan organization that values science, the Wisconsin Academy was pleased to play a role in convening a group of experts and supporting a conversation that provides scientific perspectives on challenges facing Wisconsin to interested decision-makers.
 
There are three ways to access more information on the December 11 Capitol Forum (click link below):
The Capitol Forum is part of the Wisconsin Academy's "Wisconsin’s Climate and Energy Future" intitiative. This initiative began in 2012 with a series of public forums featuring some of the many promising efforts underway in the state in energy diversification, conservation, and climate change mitigation and adaptation. Building on those discussions, we are working with organizations and individuals across the state to develop a “road map” of Wisconsin opportunities to address climate change and support clean, efficient energy choices to reduce our carbon footprint. The road map will highlight practical opportunities in energy efficiency, renewable energy, carbon sequestration, transportation, design, and process and system changes. Wisconsin can lead the way, and many businesses, communities, and individuals are already doing just that.
