Friday Night Freethought: Park Williams!

  • Oct 19, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is going to be another outsourced event but it's a great one! here is the write up from our own John Grahame-

This event is sponsored by the Museum of Northern Arizona and will be held in the Museum's Chase-Braninger Auditorium.

"It is exciting to witness the release of the scientific equivalent of a best-seller. Park Williams' work incorporates the kind of innovation and power than only come along once in a great while." - William DeBuys, author of "A Great Aridness: Climate Change and the Future of the American Southwest."

Park Williams' research paper, "Temperature as a potent driver of regional forest drought stress and tree mortality," was published September 30, 2012 in Nature Climate Change. Based on an extensive analysis of tree ring data, it reveals a bleak future for the forests of the Southwest.


Dr. Tom Sisk, Ecology Professor at NAU, says, "The science is strong and clearly presented. Its thoughtful consideration demands revision of our understanding of drought, as well as our approach to forest conservation...[T]ype conversion at landscape scales may be inevitable."

I believe Park's work is the most important and paradigm-shifting southwestern forest science to appear in a decade. I urge every scientifically literate northern Arizonan to attend. It will change your view of the world.
