It is undeniable that climate change will lead to millions of preventable deaths in this century. While this much is clear, there is much about the causes and distribution of these deaths that remain under-researched and ill-understood. In this lecture hosted by the Berman Institute of Bioethics, Dale Jamieson from New York University will discuss how climate change not only challenges our scientific understanding, but also our ethical systems. 

Lunch will be provided. See more event details

I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security. Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise what is there to defend?
