In the wake of 2012’s wild weather – heat, drought, fires & the flood that swamped 20 states, independent journalist Christy George, who is working on a book about climate change and social change, moderates a panel discussion about how people change and if they can change before the worst impacts of climate change kick in.
Panelists include Portland State University glaciologist Dr. Christina Hulbe, who worries about melting ice; University of Oregon psychologist Bob Doppelt, who thinks about society and the environment; and Portland State University historian Dr. Sy Adler, who writes about the enduring legacy of Oregon’s 40-year-old land use planning law.
