Jessica J. Hellmann, PhD, Director of Consortium member Institute on the Environment (IonE) took part in a Minnesota Public Radio roundtable discussion last Friday. Moderated by Kerri Miller and featuring Roopali Phadke of Macalester College and Michael Noble of Fresh Energy, the discussion focused on the logistical, ethical and geopolitical questions related to human efforts to deliberately alter global climate. Prof. Hellmann has led an important paradigm shift in ecology and natural resource management by showing that adaptation — living with climate change — is just as crucial to the future of humanity and Earth’s ecosystems as slowing and stopping greenhouse gas emissions.
