IAS faculty member Howard Hsu published a video and news article for Climate Nexus / Nexus Media on climate change and the impact on threatened salmon in the Pacific Northwest. The video and article examine how warmer summers have been killing salmon before they can reproduce over the last few years. Washington State tribes and State hatcheries have been witnessing the result of the warmer temperatures in the region first hand.
