ALBERT LEA, Minn. – According to NASA, climate change is happening all around us. Carbon dioxide and sea levels are increasing while the amount of land ice is lower than it’s ever been.
Residents in Albert Lea are getting the opportunity to hear firsthand how this could impact us.
Tuesday night’s presentation is titled “How real is climate change, really?” It’s put on by Dr. Luther Dale, who will be at Southwest Middle School.
Sale will talk about recent research and discuss how the debate surrounding climate change is impacted by political, economic and religious viewpoints.
The presentation is being sponsored by the Albert Lea Audubon Society.
One of the organizers says if we accept climate change as truth, we will need to think of ways we can combat its effects in our own communities.
“We will have to do what we can to promote habitat,” said Mark Anderson, Albert Lea Audubon Society. “That’s what birds, bees and butterflies all need.”
Dr. Dale’s presentation comes at an interesting time as climate change was a major topic of discussion during last week’s presidential debate and could come up again during the vice presidential debate.
The presentation starts at 7 p.m. and it’s open to the public.
