Climate change is causing melting arctic ice, drought leading to higher food prices in the Midwest, more catastrophic storms, food and water shortages in Africa, and rising sea levels flooding low lying Asian Cities and villages. We can do something about it right here in Minnesota. We have an abundance of wind and as much solar as Jacksonville, Florida. Increasing clean energy goals in Minnesota will not only be kinder to the earth, its people, and its animals, it will also create many good paying jobs, and put Minnesota on the path to economic prosperity. Join us to find out how.

J. Drake Hamilton
Science Policy Director, Fresh Energy

J. Hamilton is in demand throughout MN to speak on climate change and the enormous benefits of clean renewable energy for MN. Find out how MN is moving ahead on clean energy jobs that generate renewable energy, protect our health, reduce climate change, and keep energy dollars in MN.

Senator Chris Eaton
The 2013 Solar Energy Jobs Act

Senator Eaton co-sponsored the bill that would make MN a leading state for clean energy and create good paying jobs requiring many different skills. Find out how her bill did in the House and Senate during the legislative session.

She is active in trying to get clean energy legislation passed at both the state and national level. A Q and A and comment session will follow her presentation.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
