  • Unitarian Universalist Congregation 20103 Washington 525 Freeland, WA, 98249 United States (map)

Dr Ricard Gammon and Dr  Richard Feeley (2 reknowned climate and ocean scientists) will present on the science of climate change, where we're at and what we can do.  This event is sponsored by the Whidbey Chapter of the Citizens Climate Lobby in conjunction with UUCWI.

Drs. Gammon and Feeley will present an update us on the latest scientific data and predictions for this area.  Among their topics:

  • Status of international climate science consensus vs public  misunderstanding
  • Summary of the most recent international climate science from the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) in 2013/2014
  • Update of climate science and global climate/weather events since IPCC 2013/2014
  • Predicted climate impacts in the Pacific Northwest (from reports by the UW Climate Impacts Group, and the  most recent National Climate Assessment)
  • Action:  What Can We Do? What Can You Do?

He is a former Co-Director of the UW Program on the Environment (2004-2007). Richard received his BA in Chemistry from Princeton University (1965) and his MA and PhD in Physical Chemistry from Harvard University (1970).

Richard has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in chemistry, oceanography, atmospheric science, global biogeochemical cycles and climate change. His research has emphasized the measurement and interpretation of atmospheric trace gases critical to climate change. Dr. Gammon served as the Director of Science at the Pacific Science Center (1979-80) and remains actively involved in improving the understanding of the climate change challenge with frequent public talks.

Dr. Richard A. Feely is a NOAA Senior Fellow at the Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory and a professor at the UW School of Oceanography. His major research areas are carbon cycling in the oceans and ocean acidification.

Dr. Feely has authored more than 290 referred scientific research publications and received numerous rewards for his work in ocean acidification including the NOAA Administrator's Award for his work on the IPCC Climate Change Report.
