Our Rector participated in panel at Climate Leaders event.
(An email from Dylan Voorhees to Martha regarding her participation at the event):
Thanks again for participating on the panel at our Climate Leaders event with the EPA on Thursday! We felt the event was a great success by any measure: the audience was very engaged, the EPA folks said they got a lot out of it, too, and we got some nice media coverage from TV, radio and print (e.g. this BDN article.) One hopes the staffers from the Senate offices brought back some strong reports.
Your remarks were excellent, blending the practical side of pollution and public health with the moral obligation to care for our environment and for vulnerable populations.
Even though we missed Professor Mark Green on the panel due to illness, you might be interested to read his op-ed yesterday on ocean acidification.
Here are two pictures of the event. Thanks again for all your work on climate change and the Clean Air Act.
