February 11, 2015 /3BL Media/ - Join Green Builder Media on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at 2pm ET as we talk with Dr. James White on climate change and sea level rise.

Dr. White is the Director of the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research. He is the founding Director of Environmental Studies Department at CU, which now has about 1,000 majors per year. He is actively engaged in exploring new paradigms of interdisciplinary education, and has worked steadily to break down barriers between the social sciences, natural sciences, humanities, journalism, arts and business to better educate and train students and conduct research in the area of sustainability and environmental change.

His two main research areas are paleo-environmental reconstructions from ice cores and past and modern controls on the carbon cycle. He worked with Danish colleagues to first document the astonishing speed and magnitude of abrupt climate changes as seen in the Greenland ice cores.

He is an author on over 150 peer-reviewed publications, including more than thirty in the high-profile journals Science and Nature. In 2001 he was named a member of ISI Highly Cited, a group of the most highly cited authors that comprises less than one-half of one percent of all publishing researchers in the geosciences. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

He has served on a number of national and international committees including the Chairmanship of the Polar Research Board of the US National Academy of Science, two US National Academy studies (chair of one on abrupt climate change), and co-leader of large multi-national research programs, most recently the North-Eem deep ice core in northern Greenland.
