Climate Change in Minnesota and the Lake Superior Basin
Climate is what you have in your closet and weather is what you are wearing today. Anon.
Keeping true to the Minnesota Sea Grant mission and vision, our climate focus is on science and how a changing climate could affect Lake Superior, aquatic resources in Minnesota, and the people and communities that rely on these resources. In addition to helping citizens, communities, and industries understand how the region is responding to climate change, we encourage them to actively reduce their carbon footprints and to plan for a new climate future.
Note that climate science is constantly being refined and the way people apply what is known needs to remain fluid. Minnesota Sea Grant assumes no liability for an individual's use of, or reliance upon, the material offered on the Minnesota Sea Grant Web site.
