Given Wisconsin’s wealth of scientific and technical capacity, its rich conservation heritage, and the anticipated impacts of a changing climate Wisconsin life, how can we stimulate more dialogue on climate change and spark innovative solutions? The Wisconsin Academy has developed a new tool to provide an assessment of where we are today and a practical vision for how we can build on Wisconsin values and our citizens’ creativity and imagination to shape a future that is good for our environment and our economy. This tool is a report called Climate Forward: A New Road Map for Wisconsin’s Climate and Energy Future, published by the Academy in 2014. In this video, Academy executive director Jane Elder shares an overview of our new Climate Forward report.
