Nicole's Climate Story

 

view from cabinMy climate epiphany came through my work with the Will Steger Foundation.  I was aware of the climate change issue, but I didn’t understand how urgent, how interconnected and how important it was until I was literally enveloped by it. But I was also extremely fascinated and drawn to it and chose to dig in deeply. It began with hearing Will’s powerful eyewitness story. Knowing that EVERY ice shelf he has crossed has disintegrated – and what it took to cross these vast ice shelves that disappeared in weeks and minutes – and that none of his expedition accomplishments could ever be repeated caused me to look at what places I’ve traveled, been, seen or love or feel intimately familiar with – how are these places changed. It brought me back to Ely, to Burntside Lake, to the Boundary Waters.

Big Plans for 2015!

Annual ReportAs we reflect on 2014, the hottest year on record globally, we also saw some positive climate change solutions advanced. In June, the Obama administration took its biggest step yet to address climate change by introducing regulations to limit greenhouse gases from existing power plants. And the U. S. climate movement grew in grassroots might as hundreds of thousands of people, including hundreds of Minnesotans and many of our youth, filled the streets of New York City in September demanding that world leaders act on climate.

Our actions are significant!

In recent headlines: “Climate change is real, humans are mostly to blame, time is short, UN panel says…” The fourth and final volume of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) giant climate assessment offered no surprises since it combined the findings of three reports released in the past 13 months.
