Prof. Stephen Young, a geographer from Salem State University, will return to Quincy on March 15 to deliver a lecture on his original research into climate change. Cosponsored by Quincy Climate Action Network and the Thomas Crane Public Library, the lecture will take place at 7 p.m. at the library in Quincy Center
Climate change will hit Quincy in the form of rising sea levels and heat waves, Young said. “The hotter the climate, the more people die in heat waves, and already more people are dying in heat waves than in tornadoes or hurricanes,” he said, adding that irritability and crime have also been shown to rise with temperatures.
Young has published widely in scholarly journals, including Conservation Biology, Biotropica, and International Journal of Applied Geospatial Research, but his lecture is intended for the general public. He extended a special welcome to students and those who doubt or deny that the climate is changing.
We hope to see you there!
