Please join us for an evening with internationally recognized environmental photojournalist Gary Braasch. Gary has travelled the world creating remarkable images of human effects on the planet, including climate change events such as tidal flooding, glacial retreat, and Arctic sea ice depletion. His photographs have been published by Time, National Geographic, Discover, LIFE, Scientific American, Smithsonian, and the United Nations. His science-based work on climate change brings a compelling and unique perspective on this global issue that affects us all. Gary will be presenting a provocative visual tour of the world’s most affected ecosystems, as well as the latest science used to model and track global climate change and what’s next for our planet.
This event was organized by Northwest Friends of Union of Concerned Scientists (NW Friends of UCS), a Portland-based local advocacy group dedicated to the support of The Union of Concerned Scientists and their mission to let sound science guide policies for a healthy environment and a safer world.
This event is sponsored by Portland State University and the Union of Concerned Scientists.
