Transcript
Appendix A – Consensus Process and Participants
On June 15, 2004, a symposium entitled “Impacts of Climate Change on the Pacific Northwest”
was held to provide invited Oregon and Washington-based scientists an opportunity to: 1) share
knowledge concerning the present status of global climate change research and regional
greenhouse gas emission reduction strategies, 2) share findings on scenarios for climate change
and possible impacts in the Pacific Northwest, and 3) identify areas of consensus and
uncertainty. Sixty-five people attended the meeting. Participants were primarily scientists
working in a variety of fields related to climate change in the Pacific Northwest, such as
oceanography, forest ecology, forest economics, agriculture and resource economics, hydrology,
paleoclimatology, marine ecology, fisheries biology, estuarine ecology, population biology,
geography, ornithology, climatology, and meteorology. Attendees also included a diversity of
observers, such as members of the Advisory Group and agency staff providing technical support
to the Advisory Group, media, and other individuals working on issues related to climate change
policy.
Pre-meeting questionnaires were distributed to participants. Four experts presented overview of
scientific understanding in key areas. Responses to the pre-meeting questionnaires, the
slideshow presentations, extended abstracts of the presentations, and summaries of four breakout
group sessions (terrestrial ecosystems, marine ecosystems, water resources, and the Pacific
Northwest as a system) are available as part of the meeting proceedings online at
http://inr.oregonstate.edu/policy/climate-change.html.
This Consensus Statement, drafted by a subcommittee of participants and circulated to other
participants for review and sign-on, is also part of the proceedings. The statement is signed by
50 Ph.D.-level scientists with expertise on the impacts of climate change in the Pacific
Northwest. Names of the signatories appear below.
