Professor Randall Abate was invited to return to FAMU’s main campus to deliver his lecture, “The Plight of Climate Refugees: Rising Seas, Melting Ice, and Inadequate Legal Protections,” to undergraduate and graduate students and faculty in the School of the Environment on November 2, 2017. He delivered this lecture to a combined session of Dr. Richard Gragg’s Environmental Justice class and Dr. Chuck Jagoe’s Principles of Ecology class.

Later in the day on November 2, 2017, Professor Abate delivered a second lecture, “Ocean Iron Fertilization and Indigenous Peoples’ Right to Food: Leveraging International and Domestic Law Protections to Enhance Access to Salmon in the Pacific Northwest,” to undergraduate students and faculty in Dr. Anandhi Swamy’s Introduction to Design Analysis class in the Environmental Engineering program.
