1:00 p.m.:Finding Real Solutions to Climate Change Through Climate Justice—John E. Peck
John E. Peck is executive director of Family Farm Defenders, Instructor of Economics and Environmental Studies at Madison College, and NGO delegate to the 2009 U.N. Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. He will discuss how the impacts of climate change do not affect all people equally and how some of the proposals to mediate climate change actually make climate injustice worse. We will discuss these "false solutions" to climate change and outline some better grassroots-based strategies that can cool our planet and bring about climate justice at the same time.
