cop22_logo_medWhat’s next for climate change?” panel discussion will be held on December 19 at 5:30 pm.

Heather Goldstone, science editor and host of Living Lab on WCAI, will moderate a public panel discussion at WHRC’s Harbourton Auditorium.

The panel includes:
Phil Duffy, President of the Woods Hole Research Center
Dylan Fernandes, MA State Representative-elect for Falmouth, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, and Gosnold
Anne Kelly, Senior Program Director at Ceres
Bill Moomaw, Professor Emeritus of the Center for International Environmental and Resource Policy at Tufts University
Deborah Warner, Rector of the Church of the Messiah (Woods Hole, MA)

The December 19 event will explore the 2016 election’s potential impact on climate science and policy.

The optimism of the COP process has been undercut by the uncertainty surrounding the upcoming Trump presidency. WHRC President Phil Duffy says, however, that there is potential for climate progress internationally and at the state government level. The panel will look at the future of climate change science and policy from an international, federal, state, and business perspective.

The event will begin at 5:30 pm. A half hour wine & cheese reception will precede the event, beginning at 5 pm.
