First Parish in Bedford begins its free Lyceum series this Sunday, Oct. 3 at 3 p.m., with a presentation on climate change by Robert Stowe, Director of Harvard’s Project on Climate Agreements and the Harvard Environmental Economics Program, who holds a Ph.D. in political science from MIT and an A.B in physics from Harvard.

As Scheiner points out, the devastating effects of climate change are evident worldwide. To address this global crisis successfully will require large-scale social and economic transformation. Stowe will discuss several reasons why fixing this immense problem is so complex and how we might overcome its challenges.
Drawing on more than 26 years of experience, Stowe is a leading expert on today’s complex environmental issues who has worked in the non-profit, academic, and business sectors — as a teacher, consultant, editor, and member of key international panels such as the Climate Change Expert Group (hosted by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) and the World Bank’s Technical Expert Group for Supporting Article 6 [of the “Paris Agreement”].
