Former Minnesota Gov. Arne Carlson speaks to a group about climate change during a visit Tuesday, Sept. 28, 2021, at Silver Lake Park in Rochester. “I think the main reason why I am here is because those people that will pay the most dearest price for what we as adults do are our children,” Carlson said. “We always say we love our children.
