For our Nov. 20th program, we are thrilled have two distinguished experts who will discuss the impacts climate change will haveand is already havingon our region. Dr. Michele Koppes of the University of British Columbia and Bill Dewey of Taylor Shellfish Farms will focus on how climate change is affecting our valuable water resources, from mountain glaciers to the seafood-rich waters of the Salish Sea.
Dr. Koppes, assistant professor & Canada Research Chair in Landscapes of Climate Change at UBC, will speak about climate change's impact on glaciers in the region and how those changes will affect water resources and hydro power in the Cascades and Coast Mountains. Mr. Dewey, manager of public policy and communications for Taylor Shellfish Farms, the largest producer of farmed shellfish in the country, will discuss the impact of ocean acidification on the shellfish industry.
