On Tuesday February 3, 2015 at the Rutgers University Cook Student Center, New Brunswick, NJ, award-winning journalist Mark Schapiro spoke on the intersection between climate change, economics and politics to a crowd of over 175 students, faculty, staff and members of the public. Schapiro 's talk was based on his latest book Carbon Shock: A Tale of Risk and Calculus on the Front Lines of the Disrupted Global Economy. Schapiro also participated in two sessions prior to his evening lecture: one with Professor Cymie Payne's International Environmental Law and Policy Class and another with leaders from Rutgers student groups whose missions involve topics related to climate change. Along with the Rutgers Climate Institute, the evening lecture was sponsored by Office of the Cook Campus Dean, Rutgers Environmental Sciences Graduate Student Association, Rutgers Oceanography Graduate Student Association, Rutgers Fossil Fuel Divestment, and Students For Environmental Awareness.
