Speaker Lorna Salzman: Impact of Global Warming on Health, Water and Biodiversity
Lorna Salzman has been an environmental activist, writer, lecturer and organizer for over thirty-five years. During that time she has served as the regional representative of Friends of the Earth for nearly ten years, concentrating on anti-nuclear work and on coastal zone and wetlands protection on eastern Long Island. She initiated the Shoreham Opponents Coalition on Long Island, which ultimately defeated the Shoreham nuclear reactor, and represented Southampton Town in state hearings on the Jamesport reactor, which was later cancelled. She has worked with Long Island Pine Barrens Society, the National Audubon Society, Food and Water, Inc., the NYC Dept. of Environmental Protection, and the Long Island Shorefront Defense Committee.
