For centuries, three unique pods of orcas have hunted chinook salmon along the northwestern Pacific coast. These killer whales are top predators in one of the world’s richest marine ecosystems, one that stretches from the western continental shelf to the continental divide, with the world’s top producing chinook salmon river at its epicenter. Yet wild chinook salmon here are increasingly scarce. The orcas are going hungry, their numbers dwindling along with their primary source of food. Extinction looms for both species. Can the dammed be redeemed?

Our special guest is Jim Waddell, who was the first in the Federal Government to identify and integrate all the global warming research programs allowing scientific information to better inform National and International policies. He also served with the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Science Foundation. His work with the NSF and then as the Senior Policy Analyst for the Environment in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy was largely focused on climate change policy, budgets and research integration.
