  • Mike’s Climate Story, as told to Katie Siegner

    victus mike mageau2Cold weather has rarely stopped Minnesotans from going about their lives, and these days University of Minnesota-Duluth assistant professor Mike Mageau is proving that it also doesn’t have to stop fresh produce from growing year-round. Mike Mageau, assistant professor of Environment and Sustainability and Director of the Center for Sustainable Community Development at UMD, created Victus Farms a few years back to test out the sustainability and economic feasibility of an aquaponic growing system. Victus Farms houses fish tanks, greenhouses, plant and algae production troughs, with the fish waste fertilizing the plants and algae, and the algae separated into oil and organic matter, used for fuel and fish food.

  • DeAndra's Climate Story

    image003Having moved around many times as I grew up, I have been exposed to the humidity and heat of the low south and the artic temperatures of the high north. Even though I planted shallow roots in each of these places, I quickly got to know local people and deeply understand the culture of the place that I was current inhabiting. One of the most memorable experiences I encountered that really made me start thinking about climate change and the effect that it was having on me in real time was the record breaking drought in Texas.

  • David's Climate Story
    Written by David Evans

    david evans

    Climate change is a complicated problem. As we’re starting to see, it will affect everything and everyone on our planet in nuanced ways, and the bulk of those effects will very likely be negative.

    This is the simple logic that compelled me to focus on energy and the environment in my education. Growing up in Northern Minnesota, going to college in Duluth and living in Minneapolis for the last few years has lead me to appreciate the diversity and beauty of Minnesota’s natural resources, and I believe it’s irresponsible to squander these resources when we have the tools to protect them. While climate change presents us with a huge challenge, it also offers equally big opportunities to move towards a more sustainable and environmentally sound future.
