Director Pam Pearson
Pam Pearson is a former U.S. diplomat with 20 years’ experience working on global issues, including climate change, non-proliferation and various initiatives on the environmental and social policies of the multilateral development banks. She served in postings to Ecuador, Sweden, Norway and several of the newly independent states of the former Soviet Union, designing some of the very first environmental health programs there. She was part of the Kyoto Protocol negotiating team. From 1999-2003 Pam was counselor and acting deputy ambassador to Norway, and served as the United States focal point to the Global Fund on AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis from 2003-2005. She resigned in 2006 in protest over changes to U.S. development policies, especially related to environmental and global issues programs. From 2007-2009, she worked from Sweden with a variety of organizations and Arctic governments to bring attention to the potential benefit of reductions in short-lived climate forcers to the Arctic climate, culminating in Arctic Council ministerial-level action in the Tromsø Declaration of 2009.
Pam founded ICCI immediately after COP-15 to bring greater attention and policy focus to the rapid and markedly similar changes occurring to cryosphere regions throughout the globe; their importance to the global climate system; and the need for intensified and specific mitigation efforts to slow these changes and allow greater adaptation by local peoples.

Pam Pearson, the Director of CA-CP's European Office in southern Sweden, is a former U.S. diplomat with 20 years' experience working on global issues, including climate change and various initiatives on the environmental and social policies of the multilateral development banks. Following the initial break-up of the former Soviet Union, she helped design some of the earliest environment and health programs in the Newly Independent States, in particular focused on the Aral Sea and Chernobyl clean-up, while on detail with U.S.AID. She has been stationed in Stockholm, Latvia and Ecuador; and most recently in Oslo as Counselor and Deputy Chief of Mission. She earned her BA cum laude in Biology and Political Science from Rice University, and an MS in International Environmental Health from the University of Texas School of Public Health.

Pam Pearson, the founder and director of ICCI, told journalists during a recent visit to Bonn her indication of INDCS so far was that they are "somewhere between 3.8 and 4.2 degrees" Celsius.
Pearson and her colleagues are working hard to make the scientific evidence on climate changes in our ice and snow regions accessible and "must-reads" for the politicians and others who are preparing to negotiate the new agreement at the Paris talks at the end of the year, to replace the Kyoto protocol. She was here in Bonn at the last round of UN preparatory climate talks last month, holding a side event and briefing media and negotiators.

Pearson and her colleagues are working to have a synthesis of what scientists have found to date accessible to and understandable for the negotiators who will be at COP21 in Paris in December.
In terms of an outcome, she says first of all we need higher ambition now, in the pledges being made by different countries. The lower the temperature rise, the less the risk of further dynamic change processes being set off in the cryosphere. The other key factor is to make sure there is flexibility to up the targets on a regular basis, without being tied to a long negotiating process. The current agreement draft envisages five year reviews.
"There are a number of cryosphere scientists who actually expect these kinds of signals from cryosphere to multiply, and that there may be some dramatic developments just over the next three to five years, that may finally spur some action," Pearson says.

"The cryosphere is changing fast as a result of climate change and if warming continues unabated, the risks to human societies and sensitive ecosystems rise dramatically," said ICCI Director Pam Pearson.
