Nov 12, 2014
04:00 PM to 05:15 PM
410 Boucke

Climate change has become a topic of much concern across the globe. However, those impacted most by climate change and its effects are developing countries, who have done little to contribute to global warming.

Following the screening of the film "When the Water Ends" from Yale e360, panelists Robert Crane (professor of Geography in the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences), Michael Jacobson (professor of Forestry Resources in the College of Agricultural Sciences), and Peter Buckland (graduate assistant at the Sustainability Institute) will discuss the effects of climate change in developing countries, as well as research being done by Penn State faculty and students, and what we, as individuals in developed countries, can do to help mitigate such effects

This event is meant to serve as a platform for discussion about the current impacts of climate change in developing countries, as well as research being done by Penn State faculty and students, and what we, as individuals in developed countries, can do to help mitigate such impacts.
