Ethics in Action: Climate Change and NYC

As a low-lying coastal city, NYC is highly vulnerable to human-induced climate change, and the sea-level rise and intensive storms that can result. NYC must also be a leader in the effort to decarbonize the energy system, a challenge encapsulated in the City’s 80x50 plan (to reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 80 percent as of 2050).

You can join in the fight against climate change in the latest installment of Ethics in Action on Thursday, March 2 at 6:30 PM. Join Columbia University Professor Jeffrey Sachs for an hour-long discussion with Dr. James Hansen, one of the wolrd's leading climate scientists. Together, they will discuss how New York City can be a leader in the fight to decarbonize the energy system. You will leave the discussion with a clear action plan to engage city officials, real estate developers, and others on the moral necessity to help reduce our impact on the environment. You'll even have the opportunity to ask a question of Dr. Hansen!

Dr. James Hansen, formerly Director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, is an Adjunct Professor at Columbia University’s Earth Institute, where he directs a program in Climate Science, Awareness and Solutions. Dr. Hansen is best known for his testimony on climate change in the 1980s that helped raise awareness of global warming. He is a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and has received numerous awards including the Sophie and Blue Planet Prizes. Dr. Hansen is recognized for speaking truth to power and for outlining actions needed to protect the future of young people and all species on the planet.

Also please follow along and join the discussion on Twitter at #EIA_NYC.
