UNL Climate Study Report Release

Understanding and Assessing Climate Change: Implications for Nebraska

The following email is from State Senator Ken Haar, who will be speaking at the Nebraskans for Peace Annual Peace Conference on October 4, 2014.

Last year, the Legislature passed my bill, LB 583, requiring a study of climate change in Nebraska. The University of Nebraska (UNL) stepped up to produce the scientific study. On Sept. 25, the study report will be released as part of the Heuermann Lecture Series – an annual series hosted by UNL’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

Several Individuals and organizations are publicizing and/or hosting watch parties to view the webcast either in real time or for the rebroadcast. I encourage more to:

  • Set up watch parties to encourage discussion and community action.
  • Publicize the lecture in organization newsletters, websites and emails.

Please advise my office if you are hosting a gathering. We will facilitate your access to materials for your group. You can reach us at: khaar@leg.ne.gov or 402.471.2673

It is paramount that Nebraskans be educated on the implications of climate change on our future. I look forward to a robust discussion about the results of this scientific study.

Thank you.

Representing LD 21
