We have heard so much about the climate crisis, it is a challenge to find innovative new ways to make a difference on this issue. I have a unique presentation that features my journey from Prudhoe Bay into and throughout the Arctic Refuge by foot and raft. I nearly died of starvation when I could not catch fish, then hypothermia after being flushed down a flooded river. I explain the impacts of the climate crisis as I journey through the refuge. Facts about impacts to polar bear, walrus, Arctic fox, Arctic char, salmon, Alaska's forests, glaciers, ice sheets, permafrost, shorelines, native villages, subsistence hunting, lakes, sea levels and oh so much more are interspersed through the narrative. You can watch the hour-long presentation I gave in May about the impacts of climate change and the need to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge told through a narrative of my 700 mile journey from Prudhoe Bay into and throughout the Arctic Refuge. Find out the latest impacts of climate change on the Arctic and Alaska, and about the dire predictions in light of last summer's record ice melt. The powerpoint ends with solutions, and a question-answer period addressing nuclear energy, liquefied coal and more. With positive feedback loops kicking in, temperature rises could be horrific in coming decades. I will launch another speaking tour this fall by train, with a much improved presentation that will be much more interactive with the release of the second edition of my second book, Arctic Melting.
