Honors Presents Lecture: Zachary Brown, PhD - Tackling the Climate Crisis: from Knowledge to Action
Join climate scientist 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 loss of sea ice affect the Arctic and Antarctic ecosystems. Then Zach will move to 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.
As a climate scientist, educator, and activist, Zach Brown has been deep in the climate trenches for over a decade. He is the director of Inian Islands Institute, a nonprofit education center that deepens students' connection with the natural world. He lives in Alaska, and loves to hunt, fish, and garden with his wife Laura and his dog Aayla
