What will it take to stop Global Warming?

Anji Seth headshot

The science of global warming is irrefutable. Humans are the driving force underlying global warming,
and we have the knowledge and ability stop it. This talk will briefly review the scale of action needed to stabilize global climate in accordance with the Paris Agreement. We will ask which solutions can address the multiple intersecting crises of climate, societal inequities, and losses of ecosystem integrity.

Dr. Anji Seth is Professor and Head of the Department of Geography and chair of the Atmospheric Sciences Group at the University of Connecticut.
Dr. Seth’s research employs numerical climate models and global observational data sets to understand climate variations and human driven changes in the dynamics of climate in particular regions. Dr. Seth’s recent research has examined the South American monsoon, global monsoons, the future of climate in the US, with an emphasis on changing heat and precipitation extremes, and the 2021 Climate Assessment for the State of Connecticut. As a Geographer, Dr. Seth is collaborating with faculty across social sciences and humanities to explore underlying societal drivers and possible systemic solutions.

Dr. Seth earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and
a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Michigan. She has held positions as Graduate Fellow and Visiting Scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, CO, and as Staff Scientist at the International Research Institute for Climate and Society at Columbia University. She has been Principal Investigator on a number of grants funded by NOAA, USAID, and NSF, including a CAREER Award.
