For people such as those who live in Kivalina, an Inupiat community in Arctic Alaska, climate change is not theoretical. University of California researcher/journalist Christine Shearer, who works with CoalSwarm and SourceWatch, investigates the story of climate refugees and their ongoing legal struggles against fossil fuel companies for their part in greenhouse gas emission, and the creation of false debates about climate change in her compelling book, Kivalina: A Climate Change Story (Haymarket Books).

Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources in the Pacific Northwest

Event Date: 
05/12/2011 - 9:00am - 5:00pm
Event Location: 
The Mountaineers Program Center
7700 Sand Point Way NE
Seattle, WA 98115
United States

Symposium background
The Pacific Northwest is already seeing impacts from climate change, in the form of receding glaciers, faster snowmelt and milder winters. These changes have potentially devastating effects on flood regimes, water availability and aquatic ecosystems. The better we understand the changes that have already happened and those that are predicted, the better we can plan and prepare for them. This one-day symposium will feature presentations from a range of experts about observed and modelled impacts of climate change on our region's water resources, and policy responses.
