More about climate change in Nebraska

Reports from this evening's panel discussion about climate change in Nebraska tell about a lively discussion. Joe Duggan's article posted on JournalStar.com gives some examples of the sorts of changes scientists expect to see here in Nebraska.

Nebraska Public Radio interviewed some of the panelists earlier. You can hear that story here; this report talks about some of the changes such as the northward drift of habitats that are already being observed.

It's heartening to see more information about the effects of climate change in our own state being made accessible to the general public. Let's pray that this information can be truly heard and understood, and that we might have the wisdom and will to use it to make good decisions.

  1. Hi, my name is Jaafar and I work with 1Sky, a national environmental nonprofit in Omaha. We just had a press conference on the effects of a global climate agreement on Nebraska that I thought you might be interested in. If you shoot me an email (jaafar@greencorps.org), I'll send you the press release. Thanks!
