Governor Pawlenty might visit melting ice cap

In a step to further establish his environmental credentials, Governor Tim Pawlenty is planning a trip to visit the melting ice caps in the northernmost regions of Canada, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported Saturday.

The trip would be in collaboration with arctic explorer Will Steger, who hopes that Pawlenty may be able to raise awareness of the issue. He said Pawlenty has this ability, as the head of the National Governor's Association.
