A focus of the talk will be on the role of landscapes in mitigating climate change. Dr. Baker has an extensive background in science and science administration, having served as president of the National Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia and Under Secretary of Commerce in charge of NOAA in the Clinton Administration.  

In his current position, Dr. Baker works with forestry programs in developing countries.  He was scientific advisor on Al Gores film An Inconvenient Truth, and he is a co-founder of The Oceanographic Society.  The author of Planet Earth: The View from Space, he has contributed to numerous scientific publications.

Dr. Baker holds a B.S. in physics from Stanford University, a Ph.D. in physics from Cornell University, and several honorary degrees.

The Embankment Preservation Coalition and Jersey City Parks Coalition are organizers of the talk. The Embankment Coalition has worked since 1998 to raise environmental awareness in Jersey City, specifically through its advocacy for the energy-saving preservation and sustainable reuse of the historic Harsimus Branch Embankment and through related trail initiatives.

The Parks Coalition, the umbrella organization for neighborhood parks groups, is embarking on a five-year tree-planting program.  Parks Coalition president Laura Skolar notes, One way to slow climate change is through reforestation. City of Trees is our modest local initiative to increase tree canopy in Jersey City. We hope to learn more about what we all can do here from Dr. Baker.

New Jersey University School of Business is hosting the talk.  Many nonprofit organizations, including the East Coast Greenway Alliance, Friends of Liberty State Park, Jersey City Landmarks Conservancy, NY/NJ Baykeeper, and Hamilton Park Neighborhood Association, and others are contributors. Goldman Sachs is a Jersey City Parks Coalition City of Trees 2016 Education and Engagement Sponsor.

Reservations can be made by filling in the form at www.embankment.org/contact-us or see www.jcparks.org.

Admittance is free; a $5 donation is suggested. Funds in excess of expenses will be used for tree planting in Jersey City.
