Hey New Yorkers, 350 Conference on Climate Change Comes to Columbia Univ. this Saturday
With the warmer weather upon us here in New York, you may be torn between spending Saturday, May 2 outside or in the august surroundings of Columbia University attending the 350 Conference on climate change, but the latter promises to be quite the informative day out:
Scheduled speakers include: Noted climate change expert Dr James Hansen, director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, who will give the keynote presentation; Marjora Carter of Sustainable South Bronx, Daniel Hillel from the Center for Climate Systems Research; Johannes Lehmann, professor and biochar researcher at Cornell University; Gernot Wagner, from Environmental Defense Fund; Kevin Conrad, Coalition for Rainforest Nation; Jaimie Cloud, The Cloud Institute for Sustainable Education; and, Richard Heinberg, Senior Fellow at the Post Carbon Institute.
Logistics: The conference will run from 9 AM to 5 PM in the Rotunda of Low Memorial Library on Columbia's Morningside Heights campus. It's $25 to register online for the entire day's events, and $30 (cash) at the door, if there's still space available. Students get in for free.
