ST. PAUL (AP) – Transportation planners, public health officials and others are meeting in St. Paul to talk about climate change and how it’s affecting Minnesota.

Organizers expect more than 200 people at the sold-out conference, which they say is the first statewide discussion on climate adaptation in Minnesota.

Mark Seeley, a climatologist and meteorologist at the University of Minnesota, says forecasting models show Minnesota’s climate will continue to change.

He says the transformation will start to occur at a faster rate than seen in recent decades, even though the United States and other parts of the world have been taking steps to slow climate change.

The conference is Thursday at the Science Museum of Minnesota.
