This is video from the most recent citizen forum in Duluth:

The MN Environmental Quality Board has a new report card on energy and the environment (pdf) and has launched a series of Citizen Forums to discuss the report card, take input, and lead up to the MN Environmental Congress.

There are three more of these forums scheduled, and the above video hopefully will help motivate you to attend and make full use of this opportunity to direct Minnesota's leaders in government to create a more sustainable and just future. The remaining forums are:

December 10 – Worthington, Worthington High School [3:30pm – 6:00pm]

December 12 – St. Cloud, Stearns County Service Center [5:30pm – 8:00pm]

December 14 – Moorhead, Minnesota State University [3:00pm – 5:30pm]

For many Minnesotans these locations are long drives - we drove 4+ hours round trip from Bemidji to Duluth to check it out and create this clip, and hope that it will result in a few more people from our area driving similar distances to Moorhead or St. Cloud to put forward good plans to preserve the environment, to end the wolf hunt and preserve the genetic integrity of wild rice from transgenes and genetic engineering as well as sulfide mining.

Aaron Klemz on the blog has also written about a forum in Bloomington, MN that he attended:  Citizen environmental forum provides a ray of hope

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
