Climate change: 'It's time for action'

Paul Douglas, Meteorologist

How did a scientifically trained businessman begin to follow God's command to care for creation? That's one of the mysteries that Minnesota entrepreneur Paul Douglas will address when he speaks on Feb. 6 at 7 p.m. at Discovery Middle School in Alexandria.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. People of all faiths and the general public are welcome to attend this free event.

Douglas wasn't always concerned about the rising trends of climate change, but now, as an Evangelical Christian, he thinks it's time for action.

"There is a biblical imperative to protect God's gift for our use and for future generations to come," he said. "As Christians, we are called to be stewards of God's creation."

After spending more than 20 years as a TV meteorologist on WCCO and KARE, Douglas started several weather-related businesses, served as consultant to Steven Spielberg on the Jurassic Park movies, and in 2001 started Digital Cyclone.
