Woodbridge, CT… On December 19, Steven Stoll, Associate Professor at Fordham University, was a guest lecturer in the Advanced Placement (AP) Environmental Science Class at the Jewish High School of Connecticut.  He delivered an historical perspective on climate change, the political landscape of reducing emissions, and ideas on what an individual can do to make a positive impact on the slowing of global warming.

Professor Stoll is listed as among the “100 Top Young Historians” by History News Network, George Mason University (2010), and has published four books and numerous articles.  His book, U.S. Environmentalism Since 1945, A Brief History with Documents, is used as a supplemental text for environmental science classes across the country.  “I study the ways people think about resources, capital, and how what we call 'The Economy' functions within the larger economy of Earth. I call myself an environmental historian, but my work is related to geography, social ecology, and the political theory of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries,” explained Stoll.

Junior Joel Castle said, “I acquired new knowledge of the environment, while losing some of my old stigmas about climate change. I discovered that climate change is a social issue, and needs to be treated with activism and community involvement.”   Junior Batsheva Labowe-Stoll added, “These rising temperatures are a threat to our current world and getting involved politically, by voting or policy changing, truly makes a difference in this pressing issue.
