On Nov. 7, Cornell alum Sylvester Johnson, Ph.D., Applied Physics, presented a lecture on the effects of global climate change on agriculture, detailing the effects of rising temperatures on plant growth and ecosystems, and steps to reduce the buildup of heat-trapping gases.

Dr. Johnson also discussed improved energy policy, agricultural practice and their impact on climate change--topics that he deals with as both an author and lecturer.
