Climate change is affecting our state’s varied regions and residents in different ways, but all Minnesotans have a story to tell. The TPT production “Minnesota Stories in a Changing Climate,” part of Climate Generation’s Climate Minnesota: Local Stories, Community Solutions project, showcases six of these stories, along with narration from some of the state’s leading climate experts. The full production and the individual story clips are intended to serve as an educational and inspirational resource to build Minnesotans’ awareness of climate impacts and encourage the sharing of climate stories across the state.
In addition to watching clips here, you may download a discussion guide.
Read what Meteorologist Paul Douglas had to say about Minnesota Stores in a Changing Climate:
Amazing documentary! Congratulations to you and your team for crafting a compelling series of stories. So often this becomes an eye-glazing set of statistics and science tutorials, but this film has done a masterful job of humanizing the challenge – arming viewers with knowledge and leaving them with hope. This is one of the best examples of climate journalism I’ve seen anywhere, local or network: great visuals, pacing and stealth-science. People are already being impacted and the doc did a terrific job highlighting the impacts and solutions.
Thank you for renewing my resolve – and reminding me of the power of broadcast TV to be a powerful voice for the common good.
Well done! Paul Douglas, Meteorologist
