At 1:30 PM on Wednesday Washington Governor Jay Inslee will give a Keynote Address on increasing resilience in Washington State and the Northwest. Directly preceding his address (12:45-1:15PM) a panel of Northwest climate experts will be available to answer questions from the media. Attached is a list of additional talks likely to be of interest to a wide audience.
