Brookline resident Mindy Lubber, an internationally renowned climate change expert, will be speaking at Brookline High School on April 6.
“Climate change is our generation’s greatest threat to social order, public health, national security, and economic stability,” Lubber said.
As president and founding board member of Ceres, Lubber directs a network of 110 institutional investors who manage more than $13 trillion in assets.
“Think about it, the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act have changed the United States,” Lubber said. “We’ve seen good progress that has made a difference. We need to move more quickly, but there’s much reason for hope.”
Lubber asserts that government and industry must work together to advance sustainable solutions that will reduce carbon emissions and other pollutants, protect vital natural resources like water supplies, ensure safe and just working conditions for employees, and reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. Last December, Lubber attended the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris, and will also provide an overview of the Paris Agreement during her April talk. Audience participation is encouraged.
