Abstract: 

Steps in energy conservation for Minnesota are suggested on the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) website. The MPCA has provided the climate change issues information on this page to inform and assist communities, individuals, business, and local and state government.

During the last century, the average temperature in Minneapolis, Minnesota, has increased slightly from 43.9 F (1888-1917) to 44.9 F and the precipitation in the state, especially the southern half, has increased by up to 20 percent. Information is provided on causes of change, greenhouse emissions, and potential effects on human health, agriculture, forestry, and the environment in general-a good source of local information.
