Talking Climate Change with Andrew Gunther, Ph.D

 

Dr. Andrew Gunther will share the basic physical principles and observations that have led every scientific academy in the world to conclude that human emissions of greenhouse gasses are altering the climate. He will discuss the significant climatic changes that are occurring, what we can expect in the future, and the steps we must take to solve this crisis.

Andrew Gunther applied to be a NASA astronaut fresh out of Amherst College. The rejection letter that arrived turned out to be a solid shove in the right direction. He went back to school to earn a Ph.D. in Energy & Resources from UC Berkeley. This led to an array of jobs from testing the impact of DDT on fish to restoring Prince William Sound after the Exxon Valdez oil spill. After all he witnessed, he felt an irresistible pull to restore and protect the natural environment, especially close to home in the Bay Area. Dr. Gunther founded the Center for Ecosystem Management and Restoration in 2000, which became a regional leader in bringing salmon and steelhead back to California’s waterways. Soon after, he started creating the first State of the Bay Report, an instrument still used today to help assess the health of the bay.

As a natural collaborator, Dr. Gunther has been asked to assemble expert teams, facilitate projects and assist government agencies, NGOs and private corporations like Google. He says he is at his best when he can help even the most polarized groups find fact-based solutions in sync with the natural world.

Recently appointed by Governor Newsom to the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board, Dr. Gunther will be applying clean water laws to enhance the Bay Area’s environment while also building resilience to the impacts of a changing climate.
