UNF professor featured in panel on future climate policy in Northeast Florida

rosenblatt headshotDr. Adam Rosenblatt, assistant professor of biology, has been selected to join a panel of experts working to slow climate change in the upcoming virtual ADAPT event hosted by WJCT, “Will A New Administration Change Florida’s Climate Future?” from 7 to 8:30 pm. on Thursday, Jan. 28.

Along with Rosenblatt, the panel will also feature Leigh Ann Gustavus, climate justice organizer for New Florida Majority, and Angie Nixon, representative for Florida House District 14. The virtual panel will discuss what a new year, a new Congress, and a new presidential administration could mean for climate policy in Northeast Florida and beyond.

Rosenblatt is an ecologist who has spent much of his career studying the effects of climate change on animals and plants. He is an advocate for common sense climate change policies at both the local and national levels and is the co-founder and leader of the Jacksonville chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, a non-partisan climate legislation advocacy organization. He is also currently serving as an expert contributor on Jacksonville City Council’s Special Committee on Resiliency.

ADAPT, a production of WJCT Public Media, is North Florida’s outlet for original reporting about local government reactions to climate change, who’s helping shape the public conversation, and in-depth looks at how sea level rise affects everything from Florida’s endangered species to our drinking water, coastal economies and the U.S. Navy.
