Thanks to Under Secretary of Education James Kvaal James and Robert on the bridge of the R/V Carson

The School was visited last week by Under Secretary of Education James Kvaal. He, Jack Hurley (Confidential Assistant to the Under Secretary), and Sang Han (Deputy Director, UW's Office of Federal Relations) were able to meet with Robert Kamphaus, take a quick tour of the R/V Carson, and chat about our School, the oceans, and the challenges we are helping to identify and solve. Thanks, James, for the visit, and Sang for setting it up. Jack and James, you are welcome on our ships any time, and yes, you can re-enroll as an Oceanography major and get onto that student expedition to Fiji! 

Rap Guide to Climate Chaos

You are invited to a performance by Canadian rapper Baba Brinkman on Weds, Nov 16, at 7:30pm in Kane Hall 130 where Brinkman will break down the science, politics, and economics of global warming, following its surprising twists from the carbon cycle to the global energy economy. This performance will be focusing on climate solutions, including ocean carbon dioxide removal. To paraphrase the Notorious BIG: “Mo’ carbon, mo’ problems."

You can register for this performance here. There is still lots of room and it would be great to see you there!
