SEATTLE — Former REI chief executive Sally Jewell, who left Seattle last year to become secretary of the Interior Department, was back in her hometown Tuesday to talk about climate change in the Northwest.
She led a roundtable discussion with scientists at the University of Washington College of the Environment.
Jewell is promoting President Obama’s climate action plan to cut carbon pollution, develop domestic clean energy sources and create American jobs.
Northwest Public Radio reported that on Monday, Jewell met with scientists from the U. S. Geological Survey and National Park Service at Mount Rainier National Park. The group snowshoed to an overlook to check out the Nisqually glacier, the source of the Nisqually River, which drains into Puget Sound. The glacier has receded by almost half a mile.
