While the oil may be mostly gone, our region continues to face ecological setbacks. For years, Louisiana has watched its wetlands disappear. Last summer, the world watched as coastlines along the Gulf and its fish and wildlife became covered in oil. Join us, along with some of the nation's most respected environmental experts, to explore climate change and what it means to our coast, the disastrous damage caused by the BP oil spill, and the lingering health and economic concerns of Gulf Coast citizens. Virginia Burkett, Ph.D., of the U.S. Geological Survey, Amy Harmon of The New York Times, and Cynthia Sarthou of the Gulf Restoration Network, will provide their insight into these topics.
Robert Thomas, Ph.D., director of Loyola's Center for Environmental Communication, will moderate. This event is brought to you by Loyola's Center for the Study of New Orleans, Center for Environmental Communication, Environmental Studies program, and the Women's Resource Center.
