What does climate change look like in Cascadia? And what can we do about it? Six experts will discuss these questions and more at next weekend’s “Future of Ice Series: Conversations about a Positive Future.” This free and open-to-the-public panel discussion will provide a grounding in the local impacts and opportunities present in the global challenge of climate change.

Sightline policy director Eric de Place will detail the story of the Thin Green Line as part of Saturday’s conversation. Event moderators will be Eric Steig, Professor of Atmospheric Science at the University of Washington, and Gwyn Howat, Executive Vice President of the Mt. Baker Ski Area.
