Tony Charles, professor in the School of the Environment, presented an Earth Day Public Lecture on Climate Change in a World of Inequity.

“Climate change is one of the most massive challenges of our time, but it doesn’t affect everyone equally,” said Dr. Charles. “In fact, even the ways we respond to climate change can have unfair impacts.”

The talk examined who is most affected by climate change, who wins and loses in our climate responses – and what to do about the inequities.

The presentation reflected the results of a collaboration between the United Nations and Saint Mary's University which produced guidance to countries around the world on how to deal together with poverty, food security, and climate change.
