MCEA CEO Appointed to Gov Dayton's Wild Rice Task Force

Thursday, MCEA CEO Kathryn Hoffman will attend the first meeting of the Governor's Task Force on Wild Rice in Grand Rapids. She's one of twelve members, including representatives from Tribal Nations, industry, environmental advocacy groups, scientists, and state government agencies. 

Partnering with the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe and scientists who've studied the impact of pollution on wild rice, MCEA worked hard to prevent two bad bills from becoming law last legislative session.

Climate Change is Shaping the Future

We can no longer ignore reality. Climate change is all around us. Extreme weather events, rising sea levels, increasingly damaging wildfires and changing ecosystems across the globe show us what the future will hold if we do nothing. 

We now have the highest levels of greenhouse gases in recorded history, and the last four years have seen the highest global temperatures on record. If Minnesota acts now, we can make a difference. If we do nothing, we are putting future generations at risk.

Learn more about our Minnesota Can't Wait initiative in partnership with local student leaders.

 

The Great Minnesota Mining Debate with the Theater of Public Policy

The Theatre of Public Policy is a Minnesota based improv company that explores big ideas using improv comedy. Their mission is to make complex issues more fun and understandable in order to attract new audiences and get people thinking about these issues in new ways.

On Monday, October 29 the Theatre of Public Policy will dive into one of the most contentious policy debates in the state circles around whether or not Minnesota should permit more companies to develop new mines, particularly around the Boundary Waters.

The show will feature two well-informed guests with two very different ideas on how the state should proceed. Let’s give them both a beer, add in some improv comedy, and see what happens!

Guests include Kevin Lee, Program Director and Senior Staff Attorney at the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy, and Isaac Orr, Policy Fellow at the Center of the American Experiment.

The show is on Monday, October 29 at Bryant Lake Bowl Theater (810 W. Lake Street) in Minneapolis. Doors open at 6:00pm and the show starts at 7:00pm.

Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door. Click here for tickets.
