Climate change is one of the more pressing topics that Great Lakes Now has its eye on.
Come Oct. 31, one of the largest global conferences will be convening to discuss how to combat it, and Great Lakes Now will help keep you up to date on the happenings and how they specifically address the Great Lakes region’s biggest issues.
“COP26” is the next annual UN climate change conference. In case you don’t know, COP stands for “Conference of the Parties,” and this time the event has some really important topics that will be addressed by experts and public officials who are spending a lot of time thinking about the most pressing issues related to climate change, including ecosystem protection and resilient infrastructure.
As Great Lakes Now gets ready to attend some virtual press conferences for COP26 and do some other reporting, we want to bring you along by finding out your most pressing climate questions and taking them to the speakers at this year’s event and other people who can answer them for you.
Have a question about what will happen to the Great Lakes if we don’t limit global temperatures from rising?
Maybe you want to know what you can do to create a grassroots environmental initiative in your community, or where world leaders are at in their efforts to implement strategies created during the Paris Agreement back in 2015.
We want to hear your questions and concerns so we can get answers to your most urgent climate queries. Drop your comments and questions in the form below or email News Director Natasha Blakely at email@example.com, and we’ll do our best to get you an answer during our coverage of COP26.
