Description:
On August 2, the Sierra Club presents Professor Dee Edgers, UNC Asheville Environmental Studies, who will discuss the effects of climate change on western North Carolina. Even the most optimistic scenarios of carbon emission reduction will create a variety of challenges and opportunities for WNC. WNC is uniquely situated to become a model of climate change adaptation and demonstrate ways to become carbon negative or “climate positive.” Dr. Eggers will address updated estimates of climate impacts on WNC, ways of increasing resilience, and opportunities for going beyond carbon neutral. This event is free and open to the public. Dr. Dee Eggers is an Associate Professor in UNCA’s Environmental Studies Department. Dr. Eggers served on the NC Legislative Commission on Global Climate Change from 2005-2010. She teaches a variety of courses including environmental policy, natural resources management, the greening of institutions, and the humanities senior capstone, Cultivating Global Citizenship.
