Environmental Research in the Norwegian Arctic provides a bellwether for 21st Century Climate Change

The Camden Conference and the Auburn Public Library invite you to a discussion with Mike Retelle, a Professor of Earth and Climate Sciences at Bates College.  At Bates, he teaches geoscience courses in earth surface processes and climate change. Mike began working in the arctic 40 years ago as a PhD candidate at the UMass Amherst. His dissertation research focused on the glacial and sea level history of Northern Ellesmere Island, in the Canadian High Arctic. Since then, he and his students have taken part in field campaigns almost yearly in the Canadian and Norwegian arctic and high latitude North Atlantic region, investigating glacial and sea level histories and other aspects of high latitude environmental change. He is currently leading a long-term monitoring project focusing on changes in a glacial watershed in Svalbard, an arctic archipelago that has been greatly impacted by the recent warming trend. 

Over the last 30 years, the arctic region as a whole has warmed about double the rate of the rest of the planet, and some sectors of the northern polar regions have warmed at even greater rates.  Climate models predict this trend to continue into the 21st Century.  This phenomenon of an abruptly changing climate, referred to arctic amplification, is the result of interactions or feedbacks within the atmospheric, marine and terrestrial environments. Recent anomalous warming in the arctic has caused significant impacts on the cryosphere, or the frozen elements of the earth surface: glaciers, sea ice and permafrost.

This presentation will highlight environmental research in a glacier watershed over the last 15 years at 78o North in the Svalbard archipelago, Norwegian high arctic. Warming air surface and ocean temperatures has limited annual sea ice extent, changed seasonal patterns of precipitation, caused deeper melting in permafrost and sustained recession of glaciers and ice caps in the region. While these changes to the cryosphere at face value seem to be local and regional impacts, they have far-reaching effects in the global system that are experienced in Maine. Loss of sea ice changes the radiation budget of the planet. Permafrost melt releases greenhouse gases to the atmosphere and glacier and ice cap melt is causing a rise in global sea level. It has been recently been stated “What happens in the arctic doesn’t stay in the arctic.”

This discussion will take place via Zoom.  To register, please contact the Reference Desk at 207-333-6640, ext. 4.  When you register, please give us your email address so that we can send the Zoom link for the discussion. 

The Camden Conference was founded in 1987 as a nonprofit, non-partisan educational organization whose mission is to foster informed discourse on world issues.  The 2021 conference “The Geopolitics of the Arctic: a Region in Peril” will be entirely virtual and will take place February 20 & 21, 2021.  For more details on this Conference, visit their website at camdenconference.org.

Film Discussion: Melting Ice -- the Future of the Arctic

The Camden Conference and the Auburn Public Library invite you to a discussion on the documentary “Melting Ice – the Future of the Arctic.” 

“Climate change in the Arctic is fueling not only fear, but also hope. Sea levels will rise and flood many regions. But the melting ice will also expose new land with reserves of oil, gas and minerals. New sea routes are also emerging.

The melting of the ice in the far north has given reason for great optimism, as newly-found mineral resources promise the Inuit a better life. But international corporations and self-proclaimed 'partners' such as China also have their eye on the treasures of the Arctic. Some even dream of a polar Silk Road. As large corporations position themselves to exploit the treasures of the far north, the indigenous people, the Inuit, are fighting for their independence.”

The discussion will take place via Zoom.  To register, please contact the Reference Desk at 207-333-6640, ext. 4.  When you register, please give us your email address so that we can send you both the link to the movie, and the Zoom link for the discussion.  Please plan to watch the movie prior to our discussion on January 28, and come prepared for an engaging conversation!

Most of us have seen someone bullied or harassed and felt helpless. We are more likely to be bystanders than either perpetrators or targets of hateful words and behaviors.

Because of the pandemic, Green Dot trainings are being done using Zoom rather than in person. They are interactive, last about 2 hours, and are limited to15 adult participants per session.

The Camden Conference and the Auburn Public Library invite you to a book discussion -- “The Hidden Life of Ice: Dispatches from a Disappearing World” by Marco Tedesco with Alberto Flores d'Arcais; translated by Denise Muir; foreword by Elizabeth Kolbert. 

"A pioneering researcher's illuminating account of Arctic ice--its secret history and dire future. Tedesco unearths its secrets--from evidence of long-extinct "polar camels" to fantastically weird microorganisms living at freezing temperature in cryoconite holes--and weaves together the bald facts on climate change with poetic reflections on this endangered landscape, epic tales of Arctic explorers, and the legends of the rare local populations"-- Provided by publisher.

This discussion will take place via Zoom.  To register, please contact the Reference Desk at 207-333-6640, ext. 4.  When you register, please give us your email address so we can send you the Zoom link for the discussion.  Books should be available and can be picked up after January 4th.

Virtual Slow Flow Yoga:
 
Take some time to slow down and dive deeper into the poses, while gaining strength, flexibility, and core balance. Use the power of your breath and intention to slowly move through your practice with intention and introspection in this vinyasa style class. This is a moderately challenging class where pose variations will be offered to help everyone find their unique level of success. Have a yoga mat, a yoga block or two, and wear comfortable clothes that will allow you to move well. Take some time for yourself to move and breathe with grace, poise, and ease.   
Learn more about our instructor, Tisha Bremner at  www.InnerLightYogaOfMaine.com
 
This class will take place virtually via Zoom.  To register or if you have any questions, contact the Reference Desk at 207-333-6640, ext. 4, and be sure to give your email address when registering.   You will be sent a link to the class prior to the first class for which you are registered.

Green Dot Bystander Training
Most of us have seen someone bullied or harassed and felt helpless. We are more likely to be bystanders than either perpetrators or targets of hateful words and behaviors. Green Dot teaches safe, simple, and effective bystander intervention techniques that individuals can use, both proactively to change our culture for the better, and reactively to minimize harm.
 
Because of the pandemic, Green Dot trainings are being done using Zoom rather than in person. They are interactive, last about 2 hours, and are limited to15 adult participants per session.

As part of our virtual adult programming, each month we will share a craft – either a link to something neat we’ve found online or something we’ve done ourselves.

Did you know that February is National Bird Feeding Month?  Because of this, we thought we'd offer some suggestions for making your own bird feeders.  To get you started, we will have a limited number of kits available which includes some birdseed and a few other items.  

To register for a kit, or for more information, you can call the Reference Desk at 207-333-6640, ext. 4, or email Donna at dwallace@auburnpubliclibrary.orgKits will be available the day before the program, via curbside pickup.  Just call the Reference Desk when you arrive.  The link to this video will be posted on the Auburn Public Library Advocates Facebook page on this date and time!
