During this dive into one of the most pressing issues of our time, retired NJ Department of Environmental Protection research scientist and NJDEP science advisory board member Mike Aucott, Ph.D., will discuss what we currently know about climate science. He will highlight some existing and potential future impacts of elevated greenhouse gas (GHG) levels on the planet and its biota. He will also discuss ways we can reduce GHG emissions with efforts to encourage low- and zero-carbon energy production and also how we might actively discourage fossil fuel combustion.

Mike Aucott holds a Ph.D. in environmental science from Rutgers University. He retired from his position as research scientist for the NJ Department of Environmental Protection in 2012, but still works with NJDEP as a member of its science advisory board. He also does consulting work in energy issues, air pollution and climate change, and he is a board member of the PA/NJ chapter of the American Chestnut Foundation. Aucott manages an orchard of 800 chestnut trees in northern Pennsylvania and oversees a hybrid chestnut breeding program involving 15 other growers.
