Beginning with an update on global warming — explaining what it is, providing a history, and reviewing the latest developments in global and national efforts to slow it — this presentation by Gregory Alexander will examine the current and probable future impact of global warming on human rights, especially as enshrined in the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948). Attendees will learn about practical actions they can take to address these threats. There will be a question and discussion period.
The School of Social Welfare is hosting this discussion on Monday, January 30, from 12:30 pm to 1:45 pm, at the Health Sciences Center, Level 2, Lecture Hall 2. This event is free and open to the public.
Gregory Alexander is a psychologist in private practice on Long Island. He is a member of numerous environmental groups, including the local chapter of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby. He has been lecturing about global warming for several years, most recently presenting at the Emma S. Clark Public Library in Setauket in October 2016.
