Portland Hosts Conference On Climate Change Science

We’ll talk with EarthFix reporter Cassandra Profita about the Pacific Northwest Climate Science Conference. The conference, now in its fifth year, brings together climate research scientists with government resource managers. Phillip Mote, the conference chair and director of the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute, told Profita, “This conference is all about putting those two groups of people together.”

Mote expects about 280 people to attend the conference. Among the new research that will be presented are findings of the effects of rising temperatures and changing weather patterns on fish and wildlife.

Do you study climate science or work in resource management services? How will the conference and access to researchers affect your work?
