Wednesday, September 30 at 7PM — Dahr Jamail
Hosted by Saint Paul Public Library

Acclaimed journalist and climate advocate Dahr Jamail is the author of The End of Ice: Bearing Witness and Finding Meaning in the Path of Climate Disruption. Part travelogue and part research exposé, The End of Ice offers a sobering look at the “geographic front lines” – areas of the planet that are most immediately and visibly impacted by global warming. Front-line reporting is Jamail’s forte. He cut his teeth as a wartime correspondent in Iraq, as one of only a handful of so-called unembedded reporters to travel without military escort and report out for Western audiences after the 2003 invasion by American-led forces. In 2007, the Nader Trust for the Community Interest bestowed Jamail with the prestigious Joe A. Callaway Award for Civic Courage, which “recognizes individuals who take a public stance to advocate truth and justice, at some personal risk.” Jamail’s pivot to climate issues stemmed from his personal passion for mountaineering, which affords “a stronger connection to nature…. something that Jamail says many people living in urban areas have lost or left behind” (Smithsonian).
