Juro, I don't know if they'll videotape it but I'll find out and post the answer here. I will be giving a short powerpoint presentation, so if nothing else I'll post the file on the web and share the url when I get it finished.

I also forgot to post the street address. The Mountaineers Building is in the Lower Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle at
300 3rd Avenue West

Nate

Last night's Anglers Forum was really informative. Jim Martin, conservation director for Pure Fishing and former Chief of Fisheries at Oregon's Dept of Fish and Wildlife gave a truly inspiring, optimistic, yet realistic pitch for galvanizing support in the fishing, hunting, and environmental community to tackle both global warming and poor land-use practices as the way to preserve and enhance fish and wildlife for generations to come. Check out the NWF's climate change page at http://www.nwf.org/climate

KC Golden from Seattle's "Climate Solutions" offered concrete ways in which we, as individuals, can begin reducing the risks posed by future global warming while maybe even profiting from new approaches in energy and transportation systems. Check out their web-page at: http://www.climatesolutions.org

My role was to kick things off with a primer on the science of global warming and a brief review of likely impacts in the Northwest. Today's Seattle PI has a really nice article that summarizes those impacts:
