Professor Excited About ‘Knowledge Network’ to Promote Information Sharing

Lori Townsend, APRN – Anchorage

Last year a team that included scientists, business owners, environmentalists and native leaders in Alaska released a report outlining action the state can take to begin adapting to climate change. What has state government done with the report since then? Nothing, according to Terry Chapin, a University of Alaska Fairbanks ecology professor.

Today, Chapin summarized those recommendations during a live internet presentation for the Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy. One idea he is particularly excited about is a “knowledge network” that would allow for dialogue between the people who have information and people who need it.
