Arctic Journeys in the Era of Climate Change

Arctic Journeys in the Era of Climate Change 

 

Join Iowa native David Thoreson on an evening of historic sailing voyages and a discussion of climate change.  Thoreson will speak about his travels and first hand observations of how climate change is impacting our Arctic 

An accomplished sailor whose maritime credits include a successful voyage below the Antarctic Circle, Thoreson first attempted to cross the Northwest Passage in 1994 on the 57-foot sailboat Cloud Nine. After icy conditions threatened to crush the sailboat’s hull, the crew was forced to retreat. Thirteen years later, Thoreson made another attempt (again on s/v Cloud Nine) and witnessed firsthand a changing Arctic climate reduced the pack ice dramatically, assisting in a successful navigation of the Northwest Passage.
