Monthly Meeting -  Earth Month Program with Gary Yohe

Details

Please join us for a very special Earth Month event when Gary Yohe will tell us what a prominent climate researcher wishes the average person understood about climate change.

Gary Yohe is the Huffington Professor of Economics and Environmental Studies, Emeritus at Wesleyan University. He served as a senior member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), sharing its 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. His primary research, assessment and communication efforts have been focused on describing the economic and social risks from climate change and elaborating ways to defend against them. He has published over 175 peer-reviewed papers and more than 75 opinion and communication pieces in reputable media outlets. Yohe served as Vice-Chair of the 2014 Third National Climate Assessment in the Obama Administration and on many panels for the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine and has testified multiple times before both houses of Congress. He is currently Co-Editor-in-Chief of Climatic Change.

We will start with half an hour of coffee and conversation at 6:30 PM, followed by the main program after brief announcements at 7:00 PM.
