“Our job as researchers is not to react to what’s happening today; what’s happening today we should have been reacting to 10 or 15 years ago, and we were,” turfgrass management guru and professor of plant, soil and microbial sciences at MSU John “Trey” Rogers tells Michigan State University President Lou Anna K. Simon and Spartans Athletic Director Mark Hollis.  “We have been ahead of what Michigan needs for quite a while now, and our Spartan grads are everywhere.”

“I think to deny climate change at this point is like denying that the world is round,” much-honored and highly-respected journalist and political analyst Jack Lessenberry tells Kirk Heinze on Greening of the Great Lakes.  “We just have to figure out the best way to deal with it so we can have a sustainable future on this planet.”

Lessenberry gave the keynote at the 2016 Sustainable Living Summit.
