Fran Ulmer. Stanford University, Exploring the Global Implications of a Rapidly Changing Arctic

The Arctic has become a region of considerable scientific and geopolitical interest, largely due to global warming occurring in the region at twice the rate of the rest of the planet—resulting in less sea ice, retreating glaciers, thawing permafrost, and other changes. For the first time in history we will witness the emergence of a new ocean. Ulmer will explain the implications of rapid change in the Arctic and why it matters to the world.
