Alan M. Voorhees Distinguished Lecture

Climate change is already affecting our region, the U.S., and the planet, bringing risks to public health and safety as well as to our infrastructure and communities. The transportation sector is now the leading source of greenhouse gas emissions, and is also quite vulnerable to the impacts of a changing climate. Vicki Arroyo, Executive Director, Georgetown Climate Center; Professor from Practice and Assistant Dean, Centers and Institutes, Georgetown University Law Center discusses what’s at stake and the steps that leaders in states and communities are taking to reduce emissions and shift to cleaner transportation alternatives while preparing for climate change impacts, including heat waves, intense storms, and rising seas. Cosponsored with the Rutgers Climate Institute.
