Please join us on Wednesday May 1st for Environmental Justice: Political Implications in the Face of a Rapidly Changing Climate.

Why is climate change still a subject of debate within the US? Why should climate change be a priority in light of all of the other economic and social issues facing our country? Who bears the burden of inaction? This panel of environmental politics and human rights experts will present their perspectives on this important issue.

Professor Karen Litfin, Political Science and Program on the Environment: “Living Within Our Means: Climate Justice and Planetary Politics”

Professor Jamie Mayerfeld, Political Science and Center for Human Rights: “Ignorance and Complacency in the Pivotal Generation”
