Spring Chinook, Book, and Climate Updates

Northwest Fishing Reports published my article "Catching Spring Chinook."

I'm grateful to the San Diego Reader for publishing three of my new climate change poems, the first one from my forthcoming book Lost Salmon due out this summer from MoonPath Press near Seattle.

I explained my Industrial Oz book of climate change poems in a previous blog post.

Last night I read from it at the Word of Mouth offsite reading AWP 2016 at Casey's Irish Pub. December 12, 2015, I read poems from it to over 500 activists at the Rally for Climate Justice Event in Balboa Park, San Diego. On April 26, I will read from it at the Particles on the Wall Poetry Reading at Cascadia College in Bothell, Washington, which starts at 1:30 p.m.
This morning I received a July 2016 residency at Playa Artists' Retreat in Oregon to work on my next book of climate change poems Chewaucan Wars.  The residency is called "Art, Science and Community Collaboration (Art and Ecology) Thematic Residency (with a focus on Climate Change)." Regarding the issue, here are interesting updates for 2015 and 2016.

A few days ago Ecowatch reported "20 Attorneys General Launch Climate Fraud Investigation of Exxon."
