From Reindeer to Rainier–Climate Change Talk 4/22/08
From Reindeer to Rainier
People and Climate Change from the Nordic Countries to the Pacific Northwest
Tuesday, April 22; 7 p.m. at REI Seattle, FREE
Join photographer/writer team Benjamin Drummond and Sara Joy Steele for a multimedia presentation that explores how three Nordic communities are adjusting to climate change. Learn about volunteer glacier monitors in Iceland, Sami reindeer herdsmen from Norway and fishermen of the North Atlantic. Then, bring it all home in a discussion with local climate experts: Cliff Mass, a UW atmospheric scientist regularly heard on KUOW’s Weekday and author of the forthcoming book The Weather of the Pacific Northwest, Nate Mantua, a research scientist with the UW’s Climate Impacts Group, and Jessica Coven of Climate Solutions who works to ensure strong policies are passed and implemented. The evening’s discussion will be moderated by Chip Jenkins, the superintendent for North Cascades National Park. Learn more about this event here.
