Climate Change: A Brief History, Current Trends, and an Unwritten Future

Dr. Angel Hsu
Associate Professor of Public Policy and Environment,
Energy, and Ecology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Dr. Hsu is also founder and director of UNC’s  Data-Driven EnviroLab—an interdisciplinary collaboration of policy experts, data scientists, visual designers, and interactive programmers.

This presentation will offer a brief overview of the causes and timeline of the climate crisis, and how its devastating effects are already being felt around the globe—and even right here in Chapel Hill. However, all hope is not lost, and we are not deadlocked into a dismal future plagued by the worst effects of global warming. Dr. Hsu will explain how her research identifies and assesses innovative policy solutions from local and private actors that provide some optimism for tackling climate change.
