Scientists have known for decades that climate change is real and potentially catastrophic yet to a large extent we – as a society - have ignored and denied the problem and done little about it.  This panel discussion will present a positive statewide and national climate protection policy and activist agenda.  It will also address these questions:  Have we waited too long to protect the future for our children and avoid the worst consequences of climate change?  Is effective action -- proportionate to the threat we face -- possible given ongoing political conflict in our country and the power for fossil fuel interests?  What should those who understand the danger and care about the future be doing now?

This panel discussion is presented as part of the Alternative & Renewable Energy Issues course in Daemen's Global & Sustainability program.  For information on this exciting new major and minor, visit  For more information, or 839-0062.
