We don’t get down south as often as we’d like, but next Thursday, February 6, I’ll be on WSU Vancouver’s campus, joining the Center for Social & Environmental Justice as one of two speakers on fossil fuel exports out of the US Northwest and Canada.

I’ll talk from 12-1:15 p.m. on the climate impacts of Northwest fossil fuel exports, as well as the threats that shipping them poses to our communities. Then, stick around, because from 1:25-2:40, University of Alberta political science associate professor Dr. Ian Urquhart will go in-depth on the fate of Canada’s tar sands.

Have a friend who’s never heard of the coal and oil exports issues? Want some takeaway facts and stats to share in your community? Just want to see me in person? (Unlikely, I know.) Then this is the perfect lunchtime event for you.

  • What: Lecture: “Climate and Community Impacts of the Northwest’s Fossil Fuel Exports”
  • When: Thursday, February 6, 2014, 12-1:15 p.m.
  • Where: WSU Vancouver, Dengerink Administration Building, Room 110
