Addressing Alaskans: Stopping Global Warming, Signs of Hope

musil_book1Often the fact that Alaska’s temperatures are increasing at an alarming rate and the ice is melting can seem daunting, but Dr. Robert K. Musil, author of the book Hope for Heated Planet points out there are various signs of hope happening across the United States on a local and national level. Currently a Senior Fellow at the Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies, School of Public Affairs at American University, Dr. Musil specializes in contemporary global security, sustainability and health. His environmental work with Physicians for Social Resposibility (PSR) led him to winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 1985 and participating in international environment negotiations in Montreal, Kyoto, Johannesburg, and Geneva. Dr. Musil spoke to the Alaska World Affairs Council on “Stopping Global Warming: Signs of Hope” on Friday, November 13.
