975 Winter 2019 A Wild Solution for Climate Change
Wednesday, 2:15–3:40, Feb. 13
Fairfax Lord of Life
Instructor: Thomas Lovejoy
Coordinator: Fred Kaiser

Climate change is intimately intertwined with the biology of the planet. Dr. Lovejoy will describe the central role that forests and other ecosystems play and the observed and projected effects on the planet. He will also look at the contribution that ecosystem restoration can make in removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere before it traps and radiates more heat and causes further climate change.
Thomas Lovejoy, known as “the Godfather of Diversity,” is a university professor at George Mason University who has worked in the Brazilian Amazon since 1965 on the interface of science and environmental policy. Lovejoy developed the concept of debt for nature swaps and was the World Bank’s chief biodiversity advisor and lead specialist for the environment for Latin America and the Caribbean. He founded the Public Broadcasting System television series Nature. He received his BS and PhD in biology from Yale University.
