Date: March 19, 2015

Time: 2:30pm

Host: Marymount Manhattan College (MMC)

Type: Lecture/Presentation


Marymount Manhattan College (MMC), a private liberal arts college on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, is pleased to present Dr. Carl Safina as this year’s distinguished guest speaker for the Barry Commoner Lecture on the Environment.


Dr. Safina is a celebrated scientist, author, and environmentalist who recently penned two acclaimed books – The View From Lazy Point and A Sea In Flames. Sharing travels that take us from his Long Island beach house to the high Artic, Antarctica, and across the costal tropics, he shows how the changes he has witnessed challenge not just nature but all of humankind. Dr. Safina will discuss how science has ethical implications, how religion and science are converging toward common cause on environmental matters, and how moral responses can add momentum toward increasingly crucial solutions.
