Yesterday I presented on climate change impacts to our Sustainable Oceans graduate class. A thread on what we covered & discussed. (1/n)
We started with the #SROCC report. If you haven’t already seen @JohnFBruno’s thread on this, check it out, it is a great summary! threadreaderapp.com/thread/1176572… (2/n)
Then we read reports/case studies from three west coast tribal groups, and discussed them. We included the @aaas #HowWeRespond case study on the @TheYurokTribe: howwerespond.aaas.org/community-spot… @tiffanylohwater (3/n)
We also featured the Blue Lake Rancheria @blr_tribe and their work towards energy independence & resilience, which is featured in the CA 4th Climate Assessment. energy.ca.gov/sites/default/… (4/n)
And the work by the Northwest Treaty Tribes @nwtreatytribes to respond to climate impacts nwtreatytribes.org/climatechange/ thank you @mpoetree for pointing out this resource. (5/n)
Students noted that learning about these studies together elucidated several important things:

Climate change exacerbates existing inequalities.
Climate change includes the loss of culturally & economically important species.
People are at the center of climate change impacts.
Adding a few resources to this thread that I didn't get to use in class but y'all might be interested in. First, thank you @SarahAarons for this report from the Inuit Circumpolar Council: iccalaska.org/wp-icc/wp-cont…
@SarahAarons Also, if you are like me and use the National Climate Assessment #NCA4 as a resource, there is a section on Tribes & Indigenous Peoples: nca2018.globalchange.gov/chapter/15/
@SarahAarons And, a partner to #NCA4 is the State of the Carbon Cycle Report #SOCCR which also has a Tribal Lands chapter! carbon2018.globalchange.gov/chapter/7/ In this thread I have emphasized reports/resources that have indigenous authors, intentionally.
