Why Climate Change is Bad for Beer AND WHAT WE CAN DO ABOUT IT!
We’ll kick off the climate conversation at 11:30 about why climate change is bad for beer—and many other things we love—and what we can DO about it. Then we’ll play a team climate solutions trivia game. Walk away from this short conversation armed with ways you can be part of the climate solution.
Since transportation makes up about 28% of our personal climate footprints, we will learn about a way (besides biking!) to minimize our impacts. Lisa Thurstin, the Minnesota Clean Cities Coalition director since 2007, will tell us all about the newly launched Electric EV Spot Network. This network increases access to electric vehicle (EV) charging and electric vehicles through Evie Carshare and curbside EV Spot Charging in Saint Paul and Minneapolis.
Lisa Thurstin is a senior manager and has been with the Clean Air team at the American Lung Association in Minnesota since 2000. She implements the Lung Association’s clean fuel activities through the Clean Air Choice® consumer education program and grant management.

Exploring Climate Change with Faith-Based Communities October 8, 2022.
Laughing all the way! Comedy & Climate Change. Although climate change is no laughing matter, approaching the solutions with joy, connection, and humor is as helpful as it is fun. We will also learn about a solution to cut down about 50% of a person’s emissions—passive housing. Passive houses remarkable require no furnace or A/C and are gaining momentum in Minnesota. After the education conversation over cocoa around a bonfire, we’ll take a horse-drawn sleigh ride in our winter wonderland with local comedians.
