Tony Evers on Energy & Oil

 

 


We brought science back to the state of Wisconsin

This past year we also brought science back to the state of Wisconsin. And we acknowledged that climate change exists, and it's a threat we need to start taking seriously. Lieutenant Governor Barnes is the chair of the Climate Change Task Force, working with local governments, industry and business leaders, and people from across our state on our environment, stewardship, and sustainability--thanks, Lieutenant Governor Barnes, for your good work.
