|Title:||Climate Change Progress: the Untold Story|
|Description:||Presentation: D.C. climate lobbyist to share signs of progress in Congress
STATE COLLEGE, PA – Daniel Richter, vice president for government affairs at Citizens’ Climate Lobby, will speak on the topic: “Progress on Climate Change in DC: The Untold Story,” at 3 p.m., Sunday, October 28 in the Community Room of the State College Borough Building, 243 South Allen Street.
Dr. Richter’s talk, sponsored by the State College chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, is free and open to the public.
“Danny Richter knows more about Congressional attitudes toward pricing carbon than anyone I know of,” says Sylvia Neely, group leader for the State College chapter of CCL. “We are delighted that he is coming from Washington to speak. With the election season in full swing, we encourage anyone with an interest in how Congress actually works to attend this talk.”
Dr. Richter joined CCL in 2013 and established its Washington, D.C. office. He is responsible for CCL’s legislative strategy and for clarifying the details of CCL’s policies. He also has overseen CCL’s research policy leading to several studies on the environmental and economic impacts of the organization’s signature legislative initiative: carbon fee and dividend.
“I came to work on climate by way of medicine,” Dr. Richter says. “Realizing the potential for a warming world to make lots of people sick, I figured the best thing I could do for the most people was to prevent the warming in the first place.”
That led him to pursue a Ph.D. from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. There he explored, on all seven continents, past warming and cooling trends to see what could be learned to counter current human-caused warming. His master’s degree in geosciences was earned at the University of California-San Diego and his bachelor’s degree is from the University of Notre Dame.
After his talk in State College, Dr. Richter will travel to Huntingdon where he will speak to classes and student gatherings at Juniata College on Monday, Oct. 29. |
