Tackling the Climate Crisis: From Knowledge to Action @ UAF Murie Auditorium

Join climate scientist and lifelong Alaskan Zach Brown, PhD, for a journey into the climate crisis and how we can tackle it. Zach will describe his work in the polar latitudes studying how warming and sea ice loss affect the Arctic and Antarctic ecosystems. Returning closer to home, he will give scientific perspective on the recent dramatic climate impacts here in Alaska — by far the fastest warming state in the union — from salmon kills to glacial melt to unprecedented wildfires. Finally, Zach will speak on the true nature of the climate crisis, revealing why global leaders have failed time and again to rise to the challenge, and the dramatic action we must take to solve it.
