Nat Geo Interviews Explorers Club President Lorie KarnathPosted on the 17 March 2011 by Kungfujedi @Kungfujedi
This Saturday is the annual Explorers Club Dinner in New York City, which is expected to be attended by hundreds of explorers, adventurers, and scientists who are on the cutting edge of exploration around the globe. Before that event takes place however, National Geographic Adventure had a chance to interview EC President Lorie Karnath, and posted the Q&A on their blog.
In the interview, Karnath briefly talks about the role explorers play in world events such as the unfolding disaster in Japan, before moving on to the theme of this year's club dinner. That theme is "Maya Prophecy" which extends well beyond the dire predications for 2012. The interview moves on to discuss modern day exploration and how important it is for us in the 21st century. That's just the tip of the iceberg, as Lorie talks about a host of other great topics as well, including her next expedition to a remote part of China.
I've read several interviews with Karnath, and she never fails to impress. She is smart, well read, and very informed of what is going on in the world of exploration and adventure. This particular interview serves as a bit of a "State of Exploration" address, and is definitely worth the read.
