Le Moyne College Hosts Talk on Population Growth, Energy and Global Warming
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … Le Moyne College will host a talk by Len and Susan Sharp on “Population, Energy and Global Warming” on Monday, March 16, at 5:30 p.m. in Room 137 of Grewen Hall.
In recent decades, the world has seen a dramatic shift in climate. The apparent warming of Earth began during the Industrial Revolution and continues today. Of course, Earth’s population has soared from approximately 1.7 billion to more than 6 billion in the same time period. Thus, one might conclude that there is a very close link between “climate change” and population growth and the ever-increasing need for energy.
Len Sharp, an adjunct professor of education at Le Moyne and a retired earth science teacher from the Liverpool Central School District, and Susan Sharp, an earth science teacher in the Phoenix Central School District, will address the challenges of maintaining Earth’s resources in the face of such population growth. The Sharps have given presentations on the environment across the Northeast as ambassadors for the Climate Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing public awareness of the climate crisis.
This event is free and open to the public. It is part of Le Moyne’s observance of Focus the Nation week. For more information about this lecture, please call (315) 445-4734.
