I'm always happy to speak about various aspects of climate science, so if you would like a speaker for an event you are planning, don't hesitate to get in touch (rhwhite(at)uw.edu). My previous events have included:
  • Climate Change 101
  • The Life of Carbon
  • Going to Extremes: climate change and extreme weather
  • Salmon in a time of Global Warming

Upcoming or Recorded Outreach events

If you missed my last outreach event, on climate change and extreme events in the Pacific Northwest, you can watch it here. Or keep an eye out for our next one: plans are afoot to re-run this event with the same panelists in early December.

You can find my (joint) radio interview with KBCS's Yuko Kodama on the effects of climate change on Pacific Northwest Salmon here.
