It's Gettin' Hot in Herrre (WP)
A warming planet? Coastal resiliency? A sustainable Westchester? Pace Law School hosts the Westchester Climate Change Summit on September 12 to discuss climate change’s impact on Westchester.
We know, climate change isn’t just about melting ice caps and hot summers. But what is it exactly and how will it affect our area? This always-hot issue will be discussed on Friday, September 12, as the Pace Law School’s Center for Environmental Legal Studies and Federated Conservations of Westchester County (FCWC) team up for the Westchester Climate Change Summit, an all-day conference on climate change: its impacts on Westchester, what we are doing about, and what we should be doing about it.
Experts, including keynote speakers Cynthia Rosenzweig, PhD, of the NASA Goddard Space Center, Michael Gerrard, Esq., director of the Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School, and Pace Law School alumnus Basil Seggos ’01, deputy secretary for the environment of NYS, will discuss the formidable threats of climate change to the region and outline solutions and strategies available to municipalities to address these threats.
Law School Dean David Yassky will speak, and sessions include discussions on coastal resiliency, regional examples of solution/strategies, a climate showcase community, climate smart communities in New York State, microgrids, and ways to achieve more energy independence.
