Greater Louisville Sierra Club presents Dr. Jacek Jasinski and "Distressed Oceans"

All are welcome to come hear Dr. Jasinski as he addresses the most severe threats currently affecting the world's oceans and their ecosystems.

The presentation will emphasize the role of human activities in contributing to these threats as well as the observed and expected negative impacts that will affect humans in return. Topics covered will include pollution, invasive species, overfishing and, most importantly, climate change.

Jacek is theme leader at UofL’s Conn Center for Renewable Energy Research, where he works on the development of materials for clean energy technologies and improvements in energy efficiency in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Sierra Club programs are always free and open to the public.
