Thanks for your kind words Old Leatherneck. I haven't got the invitation in writing as yet, however!
See my first link above for some additional details, but here's the agenda.
You can download the conference brochure towards the top right of that page.
If 87% on Neven's Arctic Sea Ice Forum think we could have seasonally ice free Arctic this decade, surely we don't have any realistic means to protect arctic ecosystems against such rapid change and shouldn't we abandon it to nature and instead be focusing on building dams and flood defenses in mid latitudes where most people and agriculture are based?
Thanks for posting the agenda. It looks like you will have an opportunity to participate in a very fascinating conference and hopefully make a difference. I would recommend that you focus on stressing the following:
1. How rapidly the changes in the arctic are occurring (sea ice loss, glacial retreat, methane emissions, etc.).
2. How severe the global consequences will be, not just by 2100, but within the next few decades.
I realize that you don't have much time to prepare for your trip, but I would scour the many topics on this forum for relevant posts that you could provide either copies of or links to as many people who are willing to listen to you. I'm amazed at how much credible information that has already been accumulated on this forum in such a reasonably organized manner in just a few weeks.
Use the networking opportunities to meet and talk to as many of the influential and receptive participants as you can.
