  4. For this panel discussion held by the Wisconsin Academy and hosted by Patty Loew, author and former co-host of "In Wisconsin," three panelists provide perspective on how climate change is changing Wisconsin life and culture. In addition to addressing questions from the audience, panelists explore strategies for cultivating resilience in the face of rapid change, from shoring up food systems to conserving habitats that support vulnerable species. Panelists include:

    Michelle Miller: Associate Director, Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems, UW–Madison. Miller discusses changes in agriculture, with stories of orcharders, growers, and grazers whose multi-generational cultivation of crops such as cherries, apples, and cranberries are faced with increasingly extreme weather and other climate-related challenges.

    Jim St. Arnold: Program Director/Traditional Ecological Knowledge Coordinator, Great Lakes Indian Fish & Wildlife Commission. St. Arnold shares the story of the challenges the Ojibwe face in continuing traditions of gathering wild rice, harvesting birch bark, and making maple syrup that are central to their culture, food sources, spiritual practice, and economic stability.

    Stanley Temple: Beers-Bascom Professor Emeritus in Conservation, UW–Madison, and Senior Fellow, Aldo Leopold Foundation. Temple frames the discussion with a description of what climate change adaptation and mitigation looks like through the lens of ecology, ethics, and economics, including how hunting, fishing, and other outdoor recreation is affected by a changing climate.

    This is a presentation of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters. Recorded on November 12, 2014, at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art Lecture Hall

Wisconsin leaders are developing breakthroughs and forging creative and practical solutions that will make our climate, water and energy future brighter and cleaner. These videos feature leaders discussing innovations ranging from corporate campus design and retrofitting vintage ranch houses, to greener ways to bring home the beef and butter and more. Recorded at the Wisconsin Academy's Innovators Showcase: Wisconsin Climate and Energy Leaders at Discovery World in Milwaukee on April 29, 2013.

Presentations featuring leaders from across Wisconsin focus on innovations in systems, from manufacturing and waste water treatment, to sustainable cities; innovations on the farm, with three distinct approaches to dairy and beef production; and designs for living, looking at new designs for a super-efficient, furnace-free house, and smart and affordable ways to retrofit older houses.

This special Wisconsin Academy forum was made possible by a grant from the Sally Mead Hands Foundation. The Wisconsin Academy is happy to partner with Discovery World, an exceptional example of innovative architecture, design, and renewable energy applications, and with the UW–Milwaukee School of Freshwater Sciences.
