Professional Perspectives on Climate Change

So this was a thing that happened. Forgot to post here about it but I participated in a panel discussion about different professional perspectives on climate change. I was deeply honored to share the stage with the following people:

Sharon Delcambre

PCC Instructor and Climate Scientist
Panelist Sharon Delcambre earned her PhD at the Center for Climate Research and the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She teaches Global Climate Change at Portland Community College. Visit Sharon's website.

Michael Paul Nelson

Environmental Ethicist
Panelist Michael Paul Nelson is an environmental scholar, writer, teacher, speaker, consultant, and professor of environmental ethics and philosophy at Oregon State University. Visit Michael's website.

Cassandra Profita

Moderator Cassandra Profita is a reporter for EarthFix, an environmental journalism collaboration led by OPB in partnership with six other public media stations in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. Visit Cassandra's website.

The conversation was in front of a small audience but that allowed it to be quite candid. Unfortunately it was not recorded, and I don't have any pictures. But Michael did give me a copy of this amazing book that he co-edited, with short essays on climate change as a moral issue by people like Barack Obama, The Dalai Lama, John Paul II, Ursula LeGuin, Gary Snyder, E. O. Wilson, and on and on.
