“The Human Faces of Climate Change: The Case for Kiribati w/ Mike Roman Ph. D”
With an average elevation of just inches above sea level, the Republic of Kiribati has rapidly become the poster child for climate change displacement. Many in the scientific community have predicted the nation’s demise within the next 20 to 50 years, leaving its people to wonder where (or if) they and future generations will live.
For the past 18 years, Dr. Roman has raised awareness of Kiribati, and 5 other endangered nations through media, publications, and lectures. His lecture, The Human Faces of Climate Change, will introduce you to the people living on the front lines of climate change, and ultimately, question our collective response to climate change. This presentation introduces you to the nation of Kiribati, its people, and the unprecedented challenges they have silently faced over the past three decades.
