The permafrost is permanently frozen ground that lies under tundra and boreal forests across our northern regions-covers more than 12 percent of the earth’s land mass. It is also a vast store of ancient carbon, more than four times the quantity found in all of today’s forests.
Eric Scigliano is the author of ‘The Big Thaw.’ Eric is a journalist and author with a longtime interest in climate change, the Arctic, and the alarming intersection between the two. He has been a science writer at the University of Washington and a staff writer and editor at several newspapers and magazines, and has written for National Geographic, New Scientist, Discover, Harper’s, Technology Review, and many other national publications.
Join us at The Royal Room as Eric reveals what the melting permafrost means to our health, our climate, and to the people who have called these landscapes home. Eric's presentation is accompanied by breathtaking images captured by award-winning nature photographer Chris Linder.
