The Climate Crisis: A Major Challenge for the World
Former Technical and Scientific Director, Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center
Human-induced climate change is a major challenge for the world. It has reached a crisis point and, if left unchecked, may threaten the very existence of civilization itself. Unfortunately, the governments of the
world have failed to act decisively to halt climate change. With global causes and global consequences, climate change must be addressed as a global problem through international coordination, cooperation, and burden sharing.
In his presentation to the World Affairs Council, Mike Clancy will provide an overview of climate change and its consequences; he will explore the relevant science, review international agreements, and discuss technologies and strategies for mitigation.
Mike Clancy earned a BS in Oceanography from Florida Institute of Technology in 1973 and an MS in Meteorology from the University of Miami in 1975. He worked for Science Applications International Corporation in the late 1970s and the Naval Research Lab in the early 1980s. He joined the US Navy’s Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC) in Monterey in 1983, and became its Technical and Scientific Director in 2005.
Mr. Clancy has authored over 100 publications in meteorology, oceanography, and information technology, and received over 50 professional awards, including the Navy’s highest civilian award, which he received prior to his retirement from federal service in 2011. Mr. Clancy was inducted into the FNMOC Hall of Fame in 2015. He is a member of the Monterey Chapter of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) and a frequent lecturer on climate change.
