Steve Pacala, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Princeton University and former director of the Princeton Environmental Institute, will speak at D&R Greenway’s Green Hour panel discussion on Thursday, Jan 28, on the outcome of the Paris climate talks, the latest scientific thinking, the significance of the 2C target and the likely impact of climate change in the Garden State and in the greater region.

Other guests are Professor Anthony Broccoli, Co-Director, Rutgers Climate Institute and Jeanne Herb, Associate Director of the Environmental Analysis and Communications Group at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, also of Rutgers.

The discussion is part of a new lecture series, Framing the Future: Seeking Solutions to Environmental Challenges at the Greenway and is in partnership with the Green Hour. Future discussions will look at the future of energy in our region (May 24), and ethical and political leadership, or lack thereof, on important environmental issues (October 24).

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The discussion is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at D&R Greenway’s Johnson Education Center, One Preservation Place, Princeton. The event is free but requires registration here or by calling 609-924-4646.
