Rosales to Speak at During Sustainable Lecture Series

Jon Rosales, associate professor of environmental studies at St. Lawrence University, will discuss “climate refugees” as part of the SUNY Canton spring Sustainability Lecture Series at 6 p.m. Thursday in Nevaldine North, Room 102. The event is free and open to the public.

Rosales’ research focuses on the impacts of climate change on native populations in Alaska, and he will provide several case studies that illustrate how people are being displaced because of environmental factors.

Rosales addressed the General Assembly of the United Nations on Earth Day 2013 and speaks regularly at the Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
