Humans have faced a series of national and global environmental challenges in the past half-century, including smog, the use of lead in gasoline, ozone depletion, and much more. This talk reveals how combinations of science, public policy, industry participation, and the engagement of citizens succeeded in addressing past environmental challenges. Solomon will also explore how the lessons learned help us understand how to better manage today’s environmental problems, including climate change.

Susan Solomon, NAS member and recipient of the 2017 Arthur L. Day Prize and Lectureship, is internationally recognized as a leader in atmospheric science, particularly for her insights in explaining the cause of the Antarctic ozone "hole." She and her colleagues have also made important contributions to understanding chemistry/climate coupling, including leading research on the irreversibility of global warming linked to anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions, and on the influence of the ozone hole on the climate of the southern hemisphere. Her current research focuses on both atmospheric chemistry and climate change. Solomon has received many honors for her work including our nation’s highest scientific award, the U.S. National Medal of Science.

The lecture is open to the public and will be webcast live. For more information, or to RSVP, contact nasevents@nas.edu.
