A Sea Change for Superior: The Warming of the World’s Largest Lake

BYC Member Peggy Knapp recently narrated a movie about climate change and how it affects our lake. A timely message given the winter we are experiencing.

Members of the BYC community have a deep affection for Lake Superior. It’s part of our community’s identity. However, due to climate change, Lake Superior is changing faster than any other large lake in the world. The film “A Sea Change for Superior” looks at communities that rely on Lake Superior, growing threats to the lake, and those working to protect its waters.

How Peggy got involved:

A Sea Change For Superior was produced by partners PBS North and Hamline University’s Center For Global Environmental Education (CGEE). During my years as a faculty member at Hamline, I provided narration for dozens of CGEE educational multimedia products. I was excited to join former colleagues once again to narrate this film, spotlighting the stories of the lake and the people working to better understand the threats to its clear, cold waters.
