Minnesota Public Radio will deliver a series of four free MPR Connects! events this fall in Greater Minnesota. This year your community is welcome to attend and learn more about the whys of weather and climate beyond the forecast.

As a resident Minnesotan, Paul Huttner has a deep understanding of Minnesota’s local weather and climate. His work focusing on climate vulnerability has provided insight into the greatest factors of climate change Minnesotans face, as well as strategies to mitigate some of those risks.

In 2007, Huttner was tapped by MPR News as its first chief meteorologist. He launched daily weather chats on its 40-plus station network. He also created the popular Updraft blog. In 2013, Huttner launched MPR News’ much-awarded, weekly radio show Climate Cast, which focuses on climate change news, science and solutions.

Each event is open to the public but space is limited and registration is requested.
