The Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA) report released last fall asserts that major changes are underway in the Arctic. Is the ACIA a breakthrough climate assessment? Does it faithfully capture the essence of climate change in the Arctic? Or is it just another doom-and-gloom report from the international climate community? Taylor will examine climate behavior in the Arctic over the last couple of centuries (and beyond) to see what has occurred – and what this infers for the future.

George H. Taylor is a Certified Consulting Meteorologist. He has been active in meteorology and climatology studies since 1971. Since 1989 he has served as State Climatologist for Oregon, and is a faculty member at Oregon State University. He lives in Corvallis, Oregon with his wife, Cindy, with whom he has three grown children.
