Randall S. Abate, professor in the Department of Political Science and Sociology and Rechnitz Family/Urban Coast Institute Endowed Chair in Marine and Environmental Law and Policy, delivered the first of this year’s endowed chairs lecture series entitled, “Climate Change and the Voiceless: Protecting Future Generations, Wildlife, and Natural Resources.”

The lecture, sponsored by the Monmouth University Council of Endowed Chairs, gets its name directly from Abate’s new book, published in October by Cambridge University Press, and explores how the law, through the context of climate change, can evolve to protect the interests of three seemingly unrelated groups, which Abate refers to collectively as “the voiceless.” Read the full article at Monmouth Now.

Abate also discussed the topic as a featured guest on the Sept. 13 edition of the Green Inside and Out radio show on WUSB in Stony Brook, N.Y.  Visit https://greeninsideandout.org/episodes/ to hear the interview.
