Think & Drink: Climate Change And Policy In The Northwest says
Humanities Washington’s Think & Drink events are hosted conversations at pubs and tasting rooms on provocative topics and new ideas.

How will climate change hit the Northwest? What’s already changed—and what changes are to come?

Like the rest of the country, we’re a region addicted to cars, electricity, and consumption, and we’ve reached a turning point. Are new laws the only path toward changing our habits? And are our political leaders even capable of fighting climate change, or at the very least, helping us adapt to its effects?

Or is addressing climate change within the current political system simply a lost cause?

Join Seattle City Councilmember Mike O’Brien and UW Climate Impacts Group director Amy Snover for a frank conversation about what climate change means for the Pacific Northwest, and the promise and challenges of working within the system to address the most pressing issue of our time. Moderated by KUOW environmental reporter Ashley Ahearn.

FREE and open to the public. No tickets or registration necessary.
