Breaking Down Climate Change with David Richardson

The HawkTalk is a TED inspired program. Each semester the TV Studio Production students choose an issue or topic that they are concerned about and then they invite four speakers to come to the studio to share their experience or research on the subject which culminates in a 32 minute program with diverse perspectives.

Biology professor and aquatic ecologist David Richardson talks about two things affecting local lakes in the Hudson Valley: acid rain and climate change. Breaking down these large scale problems for people not familiar with the terms, Richardson focuses on these because they not only affect our local lakes, but aquatic ecosystems all over the world. At the end of his talk, Richardson discusses the positive aspects happening with acid rain, and the negative aspects happening with climate change.

Produced by Prof. Megan Sperry’s TV Studio Production class in Fall 2019.
