Oregon Public Broadcasting recently completed a three-part series, The Denmark Project, to coincide with the Copenhagen (Denmark) Climate summit but cleverly framed around the coastal region nearby tiny Denmark, Oregon.

Interviewed in the series were Sea Grant principal investigator, Peter Ruggiero (OSU Geosciences), Extension faculty member, Frank Burris; and Sea Grant assistant director, Joe Cone. The climate preparation project Cone has led with other Sea Grant faculty in collaboration with members of the Port Orford community is highlighted in the final episode (transcript).

OPB producer Christy George reports that the series has achieved some national prominence by being featured on the newly-revamped PBS NewsHour site, where at least 250 users had checked it out.
