Earth Day 2013: Panel Discussion--25 Years of the Montreal Protocol and Lessons for Climate Change Policy Comments

Hofstra University and the Center for Civic Engagement presents a panel discusion for Earth Day 2013 on the topic: 25 Years of the Montreal Protocol and Lessons for Climate Change Policy. Twenty-five years ago, an international agreement, called the Montreal Protocol, was reached to reduce the use of ozone depleting chemicals in order to protect the layer of the atmosphere that prevents harmful solar radiation from reaching the planet.  The Protocol is often discussed as a model that we can use for international climate change policy.  To date, there are no truly effective international policies that protect our planet from the impact of greenhouse gases that are responsible for global climate change.  This panel will discuss the Montreal Protocol and address the current issues associated with global climate change science and policy.
