Over 100 people spent their Saturday at Stone Harbor Resort in Sturgeon Bay listening to climate change experts address several issues at the Climate Change Coalition of Door County’s annual forum. University of Wisconsin- Madison scientist Dr. Steve Vavrus, Gundersen Health System chief executive officer emeritus Dr. Jeffrey Thompson, and Aldo Leopold Foundation board member Dr. Sharon Dunwoody took turns speaking about the importance of keeping climate change science on the forefront in each of their respective fields. Chuck Lauter from the Climate Change Coalition of Door County says events like Saturday’s forum are important to not just engage new people, but to keep preaching to the choir as well.
Over 100 businesses, including the radio stations of DoorCountyDailyNews.com, have signed the Climate Change Coalition of Door County’s pledge to show their support in tackling climate change as one of Door County’s greatest economic opportunities of the 21st century.
