How is UW getting involved with the Paris Climate Change Conference? Will the Climate Change Conference address the issues of people whose lands are disappearing because of climate change? How will climate-change refugees differ from refugees fleeing political violence? Today Patty Peltekos talks with Sumudu Atapattu, director of the UW Law School Research Center, and Jonathan Patz, director of the Global Health Institute.
Both Atapattu and Patz are panelists at UW’s Live From Paris event, which will stream online this Thursday, December 3rd, from 10:30-11:30 am from the United Nation 21st Conference of the Parties. Here nations are expected to ratify a new climate change agreement to lower carbon emissions.
