July 15 Energy Lunch – Climate disruption from an energy reporter’s perspective

The rapidity and urgency of accelerating climate disruption is the topic of this month’s  Jefferson County Energy Lunch Program, held at the Port Townsend  Community Center on Tuesday, July 15, from 12:30-1:30 p.m.

Presenter Dahr Jamail has been reporting on the inadequacies and damaging side effects of legacy energy systems for more than a decade, focusing in particular on the global difficulties of the petroleum industry.
He covered the Iraq War as independent reporter, and subsequently joined Qatar-based Al Jazeera as a news producer and investigative journalist covering energy stories. Jamail reported from Iraq for more than a year, as well as from Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Turkey, and has won the Martha Gellhorn Award for Investigative Journalism.
He is now back in the U.S. and has recently joined Truthout as a staff reporter. This summer, Truthout launched Jamail’s series of monthly “Climate Disruption Dispatches” to chronicle ongoing evidence and impacts of anthropogenic climate disruption.
The monthly Energy Lunch Programs are aimed at increasing awareness of how energy, energy technology and energy policy affect county life and business activity. The brown-bag lunch talks are free and open to the public.
