Climate change research indicates that a small window of time exists to mitigate the most severe outcomes of climate change. This talk will discuss some of the dynamics of climate science that are most pressing and the human impacts of climate change, including sea level rise, flooding and disaster policy readiness for high risk events. Dr. Elizabeth Marino, assistant professor of anthropology at OSU-Cascades, will lend insight into how change can come from unlikely corners, as well as how cross-cultural communication and consensus building can help us to build resilience. Join us to also hear about a new laboratory at OSU-Cascades.
