Behind the Curve: Science and Politics of Global Warming (UW PRESS)
Monday • October 20 • 7pm
Seattle Public Library, Central Branch, 1000 Fourth Avenue
Reading & Book Signing
Joshua Howe is Assistant Professor of History and Environmental Studies at Reed College. His new book, Behind the Curve: Science and the Politics of Global Warming (Seattle: University of Washington Press, 2014), explores the political history of climate change since the 1950s, and he continues to work on historical questions about sustainability and the global environment that bridge environmental history, the history of science, and the history of American foreign policy. Originally an Idahoan and now an Oregonian, Josh is also particularly interested in the local and state level political responses to the potential impacts of climate change on the resources of the American West. When he is not in the region's archives and universities studying its history, you can find him fishing in its rivers, riding its waves, exploring its deserts, and playing in its mountains.
