B-W sustainability symposium - Susan Solomon on climate policy

Susan Solomon is a senior scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Earth System Research Laboratory and was the lead U.S. scientist for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the UN body that provides international leading scientific and policy analysis on climate change. Dr. Solomon will address global carbon reduction and the 2009 Copenhagen Conference that unites governments from across the world to craft the next round of Kyoto Protocol-style international agreements and strategies for reductions. Her presentation will discuss the impact of the conference as it relates to us nationally and regionally.

Part of the Baldwin Wallace College's two-day 2010 Sustainability Symposium: Carbon Footprints ? How can we Transform our Tomorrow?

Scientists, policy analysts and many corporate leaders believe our global society needs to reduce overall carbon emissions by 80-90% by 2050 in order to mitigate the worst future impacts of climate change. This daunting task will challenge governments, corporations, municipalities, and ordinary citizens around the world to engage in a process of technological and social transformation?the likes of which we have never seen before in human history. This dynamic two-day symposium brings together world-renowned leaders, prominent local government representatives, members of the private sector, and experts who will discuss present and future issues relating to energy, climate and carbon as they impact our health and economic vitality of regional businesses and municipalities.
