Ecology/Environmentback to top

Understanding the Climate Change Problem and Seeking Solutions
Dr. Jason West, Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will present a lecture on Understanding the Climate Change Problem and Seeking Solutions Dr. West is interested broadly in the relationships between air pollution and climate change, and their relevance for environmental science and policy. Using computer models, Dr. West is currently exploring the effects of changes in emissions on global air quality, the international transport and health impacts of air pollutants (focusing on ozone and particulate matter), and the radiative forcing of climate. Recently, Dr. West’s research has emphasized the global human health effects of outdoor air pollution, and the co-benefits for air quality and human health of actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This program is sponsored by the Carolina Room of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and the Sierra Club. Audience: Adults, Seniors
