Event description

Description

Dr. James Chatters describes the relationship between atmospheric temperature and climate, showing how heating at the equator drives air movement and creates regional environments. He then looks at the effect temperature increases will have on these atmospheric patterns and the impact they could have on ecosystems, agricultural production and the distribution of people across the continents. To illustrate these impacts, he looks at past climatic changes and their effects on human civilizations, including the Indus Civilization of Pakistan, Medieval Europe, and the Maya of Mexico and Guatemala. Climate change has become even more of a major issue today, particularly in the face denial.

Dr. James Chatters is an archaeologist and paleoecologist who has worked in the American West and Mexico for more than 50 years. Although best known for his involvement with Kennewick Man, he has published more than 80 articles and books on topics ranging from earliest people and extinct animals of Pleistocene America to the effects of climate on stream flow, salmon runs, and cultures of the Pacific Northwest.
