Minnesota-based Polar explorer Will Steger and author Bill McKibben are teaming up for a forum on climate change in Edina Tuesday night.
Will Steger has adopted Bill McKibben's campaign to reduce the concentration of carbon in the atmosphere. Most scientists think the high levels of carbon are contributing to global warming.
"We're at 385 parts per million, almost 100 parts per million above normal," Steger said. "So we're like a person that has a cardiac problem; we're in a danger zone."
Steger is organizing a trip to Copenhagen in December. That's when leaders from around the globe will gather to decide how to fight global warming.
Steger and McKibben will bring ten students from the Midwest, who will report live about the meeting to schools around the country.
"The delegation will report live from Copenhagen and coordinate that with the lesson plans," he said. "That way, the students are learning more from their peer-to-peer or role models."
The public forum is at 7:30 tonight at Edina High School.
On Wednesday, they're training educators at the University of Minnesota.
