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.

"Despite good science, and good coverage from the media of this research, it really hasn't gotten through to decision makers that these processes are so close, and so hard to stop once they begin," said Pam Pearson, the initiative's executive director.

Pearson of the International Cryosphere Climate Initiative told me that it was possible but highly questionable: Waiting even five more years to slash emissions makes the risks much greater. "It's the dilemma that faces people saving for retirement-if you fail to save early, it becomes very hard to make that up later," she explained.
