Wisconsin farmers impacted by climate crisis
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Wisconsin’s environment is changing and it has some people concerned.
The League of Women Voters of La Crosse and the UW-La Crosse Environmental Studies Department hosted a public forum on Sunday.
The program was held in Dane County and broadcasted live at UWL.
It focused on the changing climate in the state and how it’s impacting farmers.
A few Wisconsin farmers even shared their experiences.
One organizer says in order to find a solution people need to understand why it’s a problem.
“Agriculture is really important when we talk about climate change because agriculture is such a fundamental part of state and national economy, and our national security,” said Robin Schmidt, Vice President of the La Crosse League of Women Voters.
The forum is part of a four-part series on the climate crisis.
