Have you noticed warmer winter temperatures (polar vortexes aside), less snow in the winter but more heavy rain events in the summer? If you suffer from seasonal allergies, maybe you’ve felt those runny noses and itching eyes lasting for weeks longer than you’re used to? These are some of the effects of a changing climate that researchers, community planners, conservation organizations, and yes, even faith communities, are learning more about and developing strategies to prevent and prepare for.
InterFaith Creation Care South Metro (ICCSM) is hosting a free event, Climate Change in Our Own Backyard, with Dr. Mark Seeley, well-known Minnesota climatologist and author, to discuss the recently released U.S. National Climate Assessment and the changes we’ve seen in the Midwest. The event will also include exhibits from Minnesota environmental organizations and an electric vehicle showcase. InterFaith Creation Care South Metro is a cooperative effort by creation care stewards from ten faith communities in the south metro of the Twin Cities who seek a faith-based approach to responsible care for the planet and God’s bounty.
