Lecture: Glacier Response to Climate Change at Mount Rainier, Nov. 1 at University Unitarian Church, SeattleLast Updated on 2016-10-22 23:17:07GLACIER RESPONSE TO CLIMATE CHANGE AT MOUNT RAINIER
Tuesday, November 1, 7 p.m. in Nathan Johnson Hall at University Unitarian Church, 6556 35th Ave. NE, Seattle, WA. Doors open at 6:45 P.M.
We can't see greenhouse gas emissions, but in the Puget Sound and Salish Sea area we are surrounded by glaciers that vividly demonstrate the effects of our warming climate. On November 1, Paul Kennard, the National Park Service's regional geomorphologist, will discuss scientists' findings regarding the effect of climate change on Mount Rainier's glaciers.
An earth scientist for over 35 years, Paul specializes in glaciology, and hillslope and fluvial geomorphology, including effects of climate change on glaciers, and the associated riverine and landscape response.

Write Seattle Leaders to Support Right Action on HomelessnessLast Updated on 2016-10-22 21:17:42Tell Seattle: Break the cycle of homelessness. It’s time for a new approach.

City Council members have proposed a smart, more effective new approach that builds on lessons learned in other cities that have tried to address homelessness. It protects individual rights, addresses public health... More »
Meet the UUA Observers to the United Nations Climate ConferenceLast Updated on 2016-10-22 21:05:26 It is a historic time for International climate action --- The Paris Agreement was just ratified by enough countries to now go into effect, on November 4, 2016. This is just days before the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 22nd Conference of the Parties (COP22) meets in Marrakesh, Morocco, Nov. 7 - 18th.
Nine people will be traveling to Morocco next month as official observers to the COP22, representing the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). This is an important measure for UU witness and advocacy for climate justice, as the COP22 will focus on critical components of implementing the Paris Agreement that will have tremendous impacts for the whole world, and especially severely climate impacted communities, for generations to come.
Here are three ways that you can get involved and learn more:
