HELENA - Members of the bi-partisan Climate Change Caucus are learning a little more on what Montana can do to lessen the effects of global warming. In the first of a series of seminars presented by the caucus, Dr. Steve Running, a professor of Ecology at the University of Montana, spoke to law makers on the weather and climate changes in Montana as well as technology that will be beneficial in the future.
Dr. Running said, "Wind turbines. Wind turbines are just tremendous. There's next generation solar collectors that I think within the next few years are going to be very attractive to Montana's sunny summer climate."
Senator Dan McGee, (R) Laurel, added, "Obviously I think there are things we'll learn through this whole process and we'll say 'no, no, we've got to quit doing that.' So I'm still learning all of that."
Members of the caucus say that while the problems and solutions are numerous and varied legislators on both sides of the aisle have a lot to learn and a great stake in making sure Montana does it's part toward a cleaner environment.
