About the Author

Scott T. Starbuck wrote most of these poems at a 2016 PLAYA Art, Science, and Community Collaboration in the Oregon Outback. He was a Friends of William Stafford Scholar at the "Speak Truth to Power" Fellowship of Reconciliation Seabeck Conference in 2014, a 2013 Artsmith Fellow on Orcas Island, and writer-in-residence at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. His scientifically-informed poetry focuses on the clash between ancient sustaining forces like wild salmon rivers and modern industry and industrial livelihood. His climate change activism includes calling TV/news stations on behalf of San Diego area tribes in solidarity with water protectors near Cannon Ball, North Dakota, reading to over 500 climate activists at a December 12, 2016, Rally for Climate Justice in San Diego's Balboa Park, serving on the coordinating committee of the Road Through Paris action at San Diego 350.org, volunteer editing and writing at SanDiego350.org, moderating climate change film showings /workshops at his college, attending nonviolent protests, and updating his ecoblog Trees, Fish, and Dreams at riverseek.blogspot.com. With Antarctic CO2 at 400 parts per million for the first time in 4 million years, threat of a huge Arctic methane release, and melting glaciers bringing inevitable sea level rise predicted to affect hundreds of millions of humans, he agrees with activists and creatives insisting nonviolent actions are vital now. Starbuck currently lives near Vancouver, Washington, and in San Diego, where he teaches creative writing, world literature, and English.
