Climate Crisis Roundtable

Slipstream vice president and sustainability guru, Karen Weigert, contributed her insights on the climate crisis—and solutions—to help the U.S. House of Representatives develop innovative climate policy. 

Karen spoke as part of a panel of experts for the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. She provided thought leadership on the impacts of climate change in the Great Lakes region. 

Rep. Sean Casten, a member of the Select Committee who represents Illinois's 6th congressional district, and Select Committee Chair Kathy Castor hosted the panel. The event addressed: 

  • increased frequency and intensity of flooding in our region
  • extreme temperatures in our region
  • changes to the Great Lakes
  • how the climate crisis harms public health and financial security
