Dr. Ripple will conclude the Resonance & Climate Change series. Distinguished Professor of Ecology; Richardson Chair; and Director, Trophic Cascades Program at Oregon State University, Ripple will speak about our current climate crisis, his “2nd Warning Letter to Humanity,” which has over 15,000 scientist signatures and his paper “World Scientists’ Warning of a Climate Emergency.” Ripple and colleagues advocate massive-scale mobilization to address the climate crisis, including much more progress on the six steps of climate change mitigation – in areas of energy, short-lived pollutants, nature, food, economy, and population.
