The Grand Portage Reservation is at the northeastern tip of Minnesota. The Air Quality Program has many ongoing projects in order to maintain healthy indoor and outdoor air. These projects include monitoring for regional haze and particulate matter, indoor air quality, invasive plant removal, public outreach, environmental education, alternative energy, and climate change.

Dramatic Video Catches Glacial Retreat

This is amazing:

h/t Climate Progress

Please watch the entire video - the last few minutes capture the largest glacial calving event ever captured on camera. This massive disintegration of a glacier in Greenland is truly incredible.

95% of glaciers outside Antarctica are in retreat, and even Antarctica is losing volume as major ice shelves collapse. Anyone who claims climate change is only based on models should watch this - because that is what the photographer admits was his view until a decade ago.
