Saving the Great Lakes and
the Implications of Climate Change

Tim Folger's feature article for the December 2020 National Geographic focuses on the Great Lakes and Tim's assignment was to write on the Great Lakes begins with the 1969 Cuyahoga River fire.

From his recent interview with Great Lakes Now ([link removed]) :
"GLN: So kind of jumping off of that in the article, you do explore a lot of the changes that were happening. Can you explain what the biggest changes were that the lakes were experiencing? How did you decide which to cover in your article?

TF: Yeah, that was a challenge with such a complex system – the largest freshwater system in the world, what do you write about? But there are really three big problems that became obvious as soon as you at start looking into the story. No. 1 is climate change is kind of the overarching problem that makes all the other problems worse, and if we don’t address climate change, all the other problems will be very difficult to remedy. So that was No. 1."

Ideas for 2021

A Sneak Peek at Biden’s Top Economist ([link removed])
Freakonomics Podcast, December 9, 2020

​President-elect Biden’s appointment of Brian Deese highlights his plan to use economic policy initiatives to drive climate policy. It also elicited criticism from environmental groups like the Sunrise Movement for his work in recent years as the sustainability director for the asset-management giant BlackRock. This is a very interesting, even surprising, look at how the administration may act on the climate crisis.

The Ashes on the Lawn ([link removed])
RadioLab Podcast, December 9, 2020

​Are there lessons from the fight for an HIV/AIDS treatment that apply to the Climate Crisis fight and how we deal with corporations like WEC and our government? Listen to this Podcast about tactics used in the HIV/AIDS fight for a treatment and how a Dr. Fauci's HIV/AIDS work was impacted.

Milwaukee Climate and Equity Action Plan begins
