‘U’ Hosts US-Canada Event On Changing Arctic

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment and the Humphrey School of Public Affairs host a symposium Thursday on the changing Arctic.

Speakers include Arctic explorer Will Steger and Canada’s consul general in Minneapolis, Martin Loken.

Steger and Loken say the changes taking place in the Arctic are relevant in Minnesota, where there’s a rich tradition of polar exploration, as well as Arctic scientific and educational work. They say they see the event as the beginning of a dialogue and a springboard for new ideas, partnerships and opportunities involving Minnesotans, Canadians and the Arctic.

The event runs from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Humphrey School on the university’s West Bank campus.

    Has Will Steger ever had a job?

    Are these clowns still beating the global warming drum? I thought since we caught a bunch of their leading “experts” cooking the books and manufacturing data, that we’d get a little more of break from the chicken little global panic mongers. I have noticed that there’s little mention of “global warming” anymore, and that’s encouraging. When the temps go down, it’s “climate change”, but it doesn’t square with their predictions. Too funny. The church of global warming is losing members since the curtain got pulled back and people saw the hucksters pulling the strings.

      Sure the world is warming. It happens in cycles & there’s nothing we can do about it. But you are a fool to think it’s not happening.

        Except that it’s not warming but we’ve actually been cooling since 98. And you’re a fool to think that we aren’t. Thems the facts, and they are uncontested.
