“The life that we would see forty or fifty years from now will be a life of much more hardship, much more challenge," due to the effects of climate change on land and the oceans, says Sarah Meyland, associate professor of Environmental Technology, on a live broadcast of The Richard French Show during NYIT's annual Energy Conference. "The only way we can protect our children and those who come after our children is to do what we can now." Meyland was among the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences organizers of the conference, which focused on extreme weather and its severe social, political, and economic implications. WBCS-TV, Fios1News, and WINS-1010 AM also covered the conference.
