Nobel Prize Recipient to Present in West Glacier
Dr. Steve Running to discuss climate change at Glacier Park luncheon
A scientist who received the Nobel Peace Prize for research addressing climate change is presenting in West Glacier later this month.

Dr. Steven W. Running will give a presentation on climate change on Monday, June 24 as part of a "brown bag luncheon" hosted by the Glacier National Park Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center and Glacier Institute.

The event, which is free and open to the public, starts at noon at Glacier Park's community building.

The presentation is part of a four-day climate change teacher workshop hosted by the park and the Glacier Institute. The workshop is for pre-registered middle and high school teachers from across the country. Teachers will learn about climate change and the complexity of the issue and how to incorporate it into classroom curriculum.

Dr. Running is a Nobel Peace Prize recipient and a University Regents Professor of Ecology with the University of Montana in Missoula. In 2007, Running shared the Nobel Peace Prize as a chapter lead author for the fourth Assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. He received a Ph.D. in forest ecology from Colorado State University and has been with the University of Montana since 1979.

Running is an elected Fellow of the American Geophysical Union and is designated a Highly Cited Researcher by the Institute for Scientific Information. His 2007 essay, “The 5 Stages of Climate Grief,” has been widely quoted in reports related to climate change.
