Western Oregon from the International Space Station, looking east. Crater Lake is upper right and the Willamette is the yellowy area on the left below center.

Anybody who thinks we're waiting for climate change to arrive should look backward: we've had giant fire seasons for several years, record-low snowpack (in 2015), and significant heat events in the summer.

The Oregon Health Authority just put out a report on the public health issues of climate change, noting how they fall more heavily on people with less money and darker skin.

Gabriela Goldfarb and Julie Early Sifuentes of OHA visit with details of the report, and some measures to give Oregonians some climate resilience.
