Journalist, Author Mark Hertsgaard presents, Living with Climate Change: The Future for Generation Hot, March 24, 7 p.m.

March 18, 2011

water 2The Tulane Institute on Water Resources Law and Policy is proud to host an evening with Independent Journalist and Author Mark Hertsgaard. Hailed as “one of America’s finest reporters” by Barbara Ehrenreich, Hertsgaard is the critically acclaimed author of  HOT: Living Through The Next Fifty Years On Earth , as well as five previous books that have been translated into sixteen languages, including Earth Odyssey and On Bended Knee. He has investigated global warming for media outlets including the New Yorker, NPR, Time, Vanity Fair, and the Nation.

The event,
 cosponsored by the Center for the Study of New Orleans at Loyola University New Orleans and Global Green USA, takes place Thursday, March 24, 2011, at 7 p.m. in room 110 of Tulane University Law School’s John Giffen Weinmann Hall (6329 Freret Street).



Mark Hertsgaard , inspired by the reality that his young daughter would face the impacts of climate change, traveled the world to learn how people and governments are attempting to face the double imperative—we must stop climate change even as we strive to live through it. The conversation will go beyond the customary “woe-is-me” narrative to highlight the lessons and solutions that Louisiana can learn elsewhere (and already find in its own backyard).

Panelists to include Director of Tulane Institute on Water Resources Law and Policy 
Mark Davis ; local activist Nat Turner of Our School at Blair Grocery; and Director of Global Green’s New Orleans Green Building Resource Center, Beth Galante .

Please join us for an event that we hope will inspire and expand the conversation on the way forward as New Orleans and coastal Louisiana face the intensifying impacts of climate change.  

Thursday, March 24, 2011 - 7 p.m.

Tulane Law School (6329 Freret Street)
