Charles Wohlforth


Over the course of two weeks in September 2004, Alaskan author Charles Wohlforth spoke at the New Bedford Whaling Museum, Yale, Oregon State University, and the University of Washington. Wohlforth’s discussions and accompanying slide show presentations at these institutions focused on his new book "The Whale and the Supercomputer: On the Northern Front of Climate Change."

Based on first hand experience, his talks described how the Eskimo whalers and scientific researchers of Barrow, Alaska perceive and respond to a changing Arctic environment.
