Global Challenges & Local Impacts: Climate Change

Join Global Solutions Pittsburgh, local experts, and community members for a panel discussion and Q&A about the effect that climate change is having in the world today.

Earth’s average temperature has risen by 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit in the past century, and is projected to rise 11.5 degrees Fahrenheit over the next hundred years. What seems like small changes in average temperature can ultimately cause large and dangerous shifts in climate and weather. Our panel of experts will discuss local, national, and international causes and effects of climate change and ways the world is searching for and working towards solutions. We will discuss the influence of national and international policy, the impact developing and developed countries have on climate change, and explore environmental economics and Cap and Trade as a market-based system to limit air pollution.

On the panel for this discussion will be:

Dr. Stan Kabala, Associate Director of the Center for Environmental Research and Education at Duquesne University
Tiffany Hickman, Western Pennsylvania Outreach Coordinator at Citizens for Pennsylvania’s Future (PennFuture)
William Luneberg, Professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law
