"Saving Civilization: The Fight Against Devastating Climate Change"
A Talk by Professor Steven A. Leibo Ph.D.

Opening Event of the Capital Region "Earth Month" Activities


Caught between the trauma of the economic crash of 2008 and short term challenges from revolutions in the Mideast to the impending presidential campaign of 2012, Americans seem to have forgotten that infinitely more existential challenge that threatens our very existence as a community; the emerging climate crisis caused by humanity’s having accidentally upset the heat balance of the entire earth. Dr. Leibo will update the audience on the science of man made climate change, the already emerging catastrophes associated with that destabilization, from devastating storms to crop failures and offers a "score card" on the likelihood of humanity successfully navigating our way through this challenge.

Steven A. Leibo Ph.D. Professor of International History & Politics at the Sage Colleges has been international affairs commentator for WAMC Northeast Public Radio Since 1997 and serves as the district manager for Upstate New York & Vermont for the Climate Project.
