Global climate change means Winona will change, too.
What those changes might mean to people with their lives still ahead of them was the subject of a student climate dialogue Wednesday morning. The student dialogue was in anticipation of the Winona Climate Dialogue that will convene at the Tau Center March 3.
About 100 Winona Senior High students assembled in the high-school auditorium to ask questions of a panel of local environmental experts. In preparation, the students, members of Peter Weess’ environmental science and biology classes, had participated in a detailed presentation of Winona weather history prepared by University of Minnesota climatologist Mark Seeley. They then formulated questions for the panelists based on their discussion of Seeley’s presentation.
