Seventh Annual Charles David Keeling Memorial Lecture

Rosina Bierbaum, professor at the University of Michigan

Please join us for a special Perspectives on Ocean Science event, the seventh annual Charles David Keeling Memorial Lecture. The Keeling Lecture series is in memory of distinguished Scripps Professor Charles David Keeling's life and invaluable contributions to climate science and Scripps. This year our speaker is Dr. Rosina Bierbaum, professor at the University of Michigan School of Natural Resources and Environment, and School of Public Health Her research interests lie at the interface of science and policy--principally on issues related to climate change adaptation and mitigation at the national and international levels. Among her many contributions to informing climate science and policy are serving on President Obama's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology and as an Adaptation Fellow at the World Bank.

Her talk at the aquarium will focus on the impacts of climate change already being observed and those expected in the coming decades. Also, learn how we can work toward improving the resilience, adaptation, and preparedness of communities, particularly those in the poorest regions of world that are disproportionately impacted by changing climate. We are honored to host Bierbaum for this in-depth look at the need for rapid development and deployment of innovative technologies, as well as altered planning and management strategies, that will be needed in the coming decades to achieve a sustainable world.
