    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Climate Change Specialist visits CSS!

Yesterday, in my Honors class – “Politics of Science in the US”, we were graced by Tansey Smith, the Climate Change Specialist at the Duluth-based 1854 Treaty Authority! This was the last guest lecture in a series of five that we have had this semester. Tansey spoke widely on various issues surrounding policies and projects designed and being implemented in Minnesota to curb climate change effects. We also got to ask questions about the work being done and the outlook of climate change in Minnesota in the next few years. For good or for worse, temperatures are projected to increase as well as precipitation, affecting many species that relied on the cooler (cold) Minnesotan clime for survival such as moose.

The past guest lectures also touched on various issues around science policy and administration. I am thankful that we get such opportunities to learn from specialists and experts in various fields. It is a good opportunity to think of ways to help save the planet and be good custodians of natural resources for our own sake and for the sake of future generations.
