Climate economists have described Climate Change as “The Mother of All Externalities.”  Shifts in global ecosystems resulting from the industrialization of human economies will affect virtually all of humanity and will require broad international policy cooperation if we are to avoid their worst potential consequences.  It is both extremely complex and extremely controversial.

Amanda Shepherd is well qualified to present a public lecture on the science of Climate Change.  She graduated from the Department of Earth and Environmental Systems at Indiana State University, earning both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in geology.   Her research experience includes studies in paleooceanography and paloeclimatology.

Ms. Shepherd’s visit to Indiana State University is sponsored by the Hoosier Environmental Council, the Indiana State University Department of Economics and Cunningham Memorial Library.
