Climate Change and Adaptation Science: WICCI

Jack Sullivan
Created: 7/14/2014 -


Jack Sullivan and others give a climate change update to the Natural Resources Board.

DNR staff and Dr. Tracey Holloway brief the NRB on Climate Change developments. See the tool bar above the video and image windows. "Chapters" have been added to the PowerPoint presentation which enable you, the viewer, to quickly navigate the presentation segments. Simply click-on the "slide list" icon to locate the chapters.


Global climate models indicate that climate change will have significant impacts on mid-latitude regions such as the Upper Midwest, but little is known about specific effects on Wisconsin's environment, economy, and human health, or how to address potential threats or opportunities. Effective responses will require the best available science and meaningful participation of public and private stakeholders.
