Two Early Critics Who Warned of Climate Change Problems
Will Explain the Latest IPCC Findings
At Brookdale CC/Sierra “Science Monday” Talk Feb. 25
February 25 -- Lynn and Jan Dash, who have for years been urging for the reduction of pollutants that have been driving global warming, will explain at Brookdale Community College the latest warnings of UN/IPCC studies that find climate changes are accelerating at faster rates than previously predicted. Their talk, free and open to the public, will be at 6 pm, Monday, Feb. 25 at Brookdale’s Lincroft campus.
Dr. Jan Dash, a retired business executive, has been a member of the U.N. NGO Committee on Sustainable Development; an advisor to the U.S. EPA; head of the UUUNO Global Warming Committee; and adjunct professor at both New York and Fordham Universities. His wife, Lynn, an indefatigable speaker on the disastrous effects of global warming, has been a group leader in the Lincroft (NJ) chapter of the grass-roots Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) since its inception in 2012. She was a credentialed NGO observer at the IPCC “Conference of Parties” COP 15 in Copenhagen and at COP 21 in Paris. The Dashes have called global warming the “gravest survival and ethical issue of our time.”
The latest findings of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) is that global warming is increasing at an accelerated rate, which can adversely affect, for example, worldwide food supplies, water and air quality, ocean temperatures, rising sea levels, and long-range weather patterns that could endanger both human and animal health and survival.
Their presentation, part of the BCC/Sierra Club’s “Science Monday” series of environmental lectures, is hosted by BCC’s Environmental Club to encourage students to be involved in statewide and national debates on the importance of strong environmental protections. The BCC/Sierra environmental science series is now in its 10th year.
A free pizza and subs buffet begins at 6:00 p.m. in Warner Student Life Center (SLC) Twin Lights Rooms I and II, and the presentation begins at 6:30 p.m.
