Goodstein takes the plunge to raise awareness of global warming

December 13, 2007

(Portland, Ore.)—For Professor of Economics and Focus the Nation Project Director Eban Goodstein, the chilly banks of the Willamette River are just another stop on the path to the elimination of global warming. On Saturday, December 8, Goodstein and others hosted a Polar Bear Plunge to raise awareness about the plight of the polar bear and other species threatened by global warming, which Goodstein calls a “problem that affects all life on this planet.”

Organizers and participants planned the event, which attracted hundreds of supporters, to draw attention to Focus the Nation’s national teach-in on global warming, on January 31. Read more about the Polar Bear Plunge and Goodstein’s efforts at The Oregonian.
