What will global warming mean for our region? Between March and September 2007, eight experts spoke at seven sites around Wisconsin to discuss what is known, what is predicted and what can be done to adapt to a changing climate. The series began with a keynote presentation by Dr. Kevin Trenberth, a leading climate researcher from the National Center for Atmospheric Research and one of the authors of the 2007 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Subsequent talks highlighted how climate change could affect our property, water resources, fisheries, and public health.

To continue and expand public discussion of what climate change means for the Great Lakes region, a written summary and video of each seminar PowerPoint® presentation can be downloaded free of charge from the “The Seminars” section of this Web site.

An 80-page summary report and a DVD of the entire "Climate Change in the Great Lakes Region" seminar series are now available from the UW Aquatic Science Center’s online Publications Store.

An essay from the summary report that describes what climate change means for Wisconsin may be read on the “Why Care about Climate Change?” section of this Web site, and a list of 17 suggestions for what each of us can do to help is featured in the “What We Can Do” section. Both were prepared by UW Aquatic Sciences Center Communicator Stephen Wittman.
