PRESS RELEASE
Baruch College to Host Series of Climate Change Seminars, Beginning October 22
NEW YORK, NY – October 16, 2015 – Baruch College will host a series of three seminars focused on climate change. The first, “Weathering the Storm: How Are Businesses Responding to Climate Risks”, will take place on Thursday, October 22 at 2:30 p.m. Katy Maher, a Science Fellow and Resilience Project Coordinator at the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) will serve as keynote speaker. These seminars are free and open to the public.

Extreme weather and other climate-related impacts are becoming more frequent, and are imposing real costs on communities and companies. Companies have always navigated a changing business environment; but now they face a changing physical environment, as climate change affects their facilities and operations, supply and distribution chains, electricity and water, and employees and customers. “Weathering the Storm” will examine how companies are preparing for climate risks, what is keeping them from doing more, and what strategies could help companies in strengthening climate resilience.

The second seminar, “The Goldilocks Principle of Support for Climate Change Action: Framing Climate Change at a Distance that’s Just Right” will take place on October 29 at 2:30 p.m. Led by University of Kansas Professor Rachel McDonald, the seminar will focus on the factors that cause people to protect the environment, pay for pro-environmentally responsible products, take environmental political action, and support sustainable policies.

The series will conclude on November 12 with the final seminar, “Is the New Communication Climate Good for the Earth’s Climate?” Prize-winning science journalist, online communicator, and author Andrew Revkin will explore issues and opportunities arising as both the environment and the media experience an era of unprecedented and unpredictable change.

To register for the seminars, please contact Matthew LePere via email or phone at Matthew.LePere or (646) 312-3231.
