The Northwest Passage in the Era of Climate Change

July 10, 2016

Presentation by: David Thoreson

This presentation includes a more in-depth look at the science of climate change with the emphasis on the Arctic. Using David’s unique northern experiences, he explores the state of the polar ice cap, changes in native villages, culture, tourism, resource development and the northern sea routes with increasing shipping and commerce in the Arctic. Why is the Arctic considered the epicenter of the climate debate? What is the future of the Northwest and Northeast Sea Passages? David will explore the many questions and host a lively discussion.
