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.
