From smoky skies to shifting shorelines, climate change will affect our lives in many ways here in the Pacific Northwest. Heidi Roop is Lead Scientist for Science Communication at the University of Washington Climate Impacts Group. She will explore the range of observed and projected climate impacts here in our region, discuss the factors that hinder and motivate changes in political will and social acceptance of climate change, and suggest ways we can work together to prepare our communities for a warming world. She is also an affiliate assistant professor in the UW Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences, and combines climate science research and the science communication to educate and inform decision makers and communities across the region, the nation, and internationally. A geologist by education, she says she now focuses primarily on ‘moving mountains’ to achieve climate resilience.
