McKnight Foundation Sees MN Leading Fight Against Climate Change

“We really see a unique opportunity for Midwest leadership on this issue,” (Aimee Witteman, program director of Midwest Climate & Energy) said. “People talk a lot about technological innovation on the coast. But we think we are uniquely positioned to identify opportunities for Midwest leadership on climate change.”

In fact, Minnesota remains a leader on many fronts, she said. Businesses involved in clean energy employ more than 57,000 people in Minnesota, with jobs in the solar industry growing last year by 44 percent.” ~Finance & Commerce, April 3rd
