Great Lakes: Climate, Energy & Economy

Interactive Conference Call // Great Lakes: Climate, Energy & Economy

The Great Lakes and Great Lakes states are in the midst of a remarkable and confounding ecological and economic transition related to climate change and the fossil energy sector that industries and scientists are busy trying to anticipate and understand.

For the past three years Circle of Blue has reported extensively on the critical water-food-energy choke points in the U.S. , China and Australia. This month CoB explore the Great Lakes in transition - climate, energy and economy. The reportage will be published next week. Join Circle of Blue and other prominent authorities in a special interactive conference call where you can ask questions, learn more, and help sort out seminal trends that are shaping the Great Lakes.
