Professor Erica Lyman Checks in from the Warsaw Climate Change Conference

November 11, 2013

Professor Erica Lyman is in Warsaw assisting as a delegate with the  Palau Climate Change Team. She sent a brief update this morning. “It is an honor to work with Palau’s UN Ambassador and officials from Palau – the stark reality of climate change was witnessed in Palau when Typhoon Haiyan struck before landing in the Philippines. Philippines took the floor here at the opening of the meeting, and in solidarity with his fellow citizens and to impress on us all the need for ambitious action, the Lead Negotiator declared that he would fast until we arrive at meaningful agreement here in Warsaw.”
