Climate Action: Local Challenges, Local Solutions

–submitted by Andrea Kaminski

At our online January 5 Rotary meeting, Dane County Executive Joe Parisi and WKOW-TV Senior Chief Meteorologist Bob Lindmeier spoke about the local challenges and solutions in Dane County related to climate change. Lindmeier set the stage as a qualified, trusted messenger with a passion for climate change education. He said the problem is simple, it has serious implications, and it is solvable. He cited ample peer-reviewed information to confirm that climate change is real and that it affects the natural environment, public health and economy of our area. Parisi outlined several initiatives instituted by Dane County government which are significantly offsetting the use of fossil fuels and saving taxpayers money.
