Suffolk County Community College Professor in Prestigious International Climate Change ‘Myth-Busting’ Group

Suffolk County Community College’s Scott Mandia, Professor of Physical Sciences and Assistant Chair is part of a prestigious international team of select science department researchers who are contributing to a new course offered by The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia that uncovers why the topic of climate change is so controversial. The group debunks a few climate myths along the way.

The free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) includes renowned researchers from universities in Canada, the United States and United Kingdom. Even Sir David Attenborough lends his support.

“Climate scientists, health experts, insurers, and the military have warned us about the negative impacts of human-caused climate change. Unfortunately, there are some in the public who are confused about the settled science of global warming due in large part to the spread of climate misinformation. This MOOC will address those myths and provide participants with the tools they need to put these myths to rest,” Mandia said.

Mandia has been very active in educating the public and other scientists about why settled science is not accepted by some in the public and political arena. Mandia has addressed this issue at American Geophysical Union and Geological Society of America conferences in the United States and Canada and most recently was a guest speaker at Union College (Schenectady, NY) Environmental Science, Policy and Engineering Winter Seminar Series. Previous speakers include Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Lonnie Thompson and Bill McKibben. Mandia is also one of three expert panellists invited to speak about climate change at the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry Conference this June.

Course coordinator and Climate Communication Fellow for the Global Change Institute at UQ, John Cook, said the course not only tackles climate myths, but also exposes the techniques used to mislead the public.

“Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists agree that humans are causing global warming. However, less than half of Australians are aware of human’s role in climate change while half of the U.S. Senate voted that humans weren’t causing global warming.”

“This free course explains why there is such a huge gap between the scientific community and the public”, Cook said.

Removing this gap is an important step in supporting policy development to ensure that decisions are made using peer reviewed science, leading to maximum benefit for communities, economies and the environment.

The course, Making Sense of Climate Science Denial, is a seven-week program featuring interviews from 75 notable climate science experts.

Other scientists interviewed for the MOOC include Naomi Oreskes, author of Merchants of Doubt, and Katharine Hayhoe, recently named one of the 100 Most Influential People by Time Magazine.

The course begins on April 28 and runs for seven weeks, requiring one to two hours per week.

The course is offered free to anyone in the world through the not-for-profit online learning platform edX. Enroll at: http://edx.org/understanding-climate-denial Thousands of students from more than 130 countries have enrolled to date.

A CONVERSATION AMONG SURVIVORS
Yom Hashoah – Holocaust Remembrance

On April 22 four survivors will speak about life before and after the Holocaust, how the Holocaust shaped their lives and their vision.  As the Holocaust becomes more distant, now 70 years since liberation, we will have fewer opportunities to hear the insights of those who lived through that time.

A special feature of this year’s program will be that not only will it be heard by hundreds of community college students, students from the Knox School, and community members gathered in the Theatre on the Ammerman Campus of Suffolk County Community College, but it will also be viewed live over the internet by hundreds more gathered at the Commack and Smithtown School Districts and at the Eastern Campus of the College.

Our esteemed participants will be:

Annie Bleiberg, now of Woodbury, was born in Poland, was forced to live in the Lubaczow Ghetto, the Krakower Ghetto, the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, and the Mohrisch Weisswasser work camp in Czechoslovakia.

Werner Reich, now of Smithtown, was born in Germany, moved to Yugoslavia, and was sent to Terezin Czechoslovakia, the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, and Mauthausen.

Hannah Robinson, now of Sound Beach, was born in Germany, and at nine years old her parents sent her with her brother to England, on the Kindertransport.

Ruth Minsky Sender, now of East Setauket, was born in Poland, was forced to live in the Lodz Ghetto, the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, the Mittelsteine and Grafenort work camps, and a displaced persons camp in Germany.

Event Date:        April 22, 2015; 11 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
Location:           Shea Theatre, Islip Arts Building, Suffolk County Community College, Ammerman Campus in Selden

Speakers:           Annie Bleiberg
Werner Reich
Hannah Robinson
Ruth Minsky Sender

LI Shakespeare Festival’s 15th Season at Suffolk – FREE This Summer

Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is presented at the 2013 Long Island Shakespeare Festival at Suffolk County Community College’s Ammerman Campus in Selden.

The 15th season of the Long Island Shakespeare Festival (LISF) will kick off this July with free performances of an abridged version of Shakespeare’s As You Like It.  Performances will take place rain or shine at Suffolk County Community College’s Ammerman Campus in Selden. The free performances are underwritten by the Suffolk County Community College Association as a gift to Long Island.

Theater lovers are encouraged to bring a lawn chair, family and friends to the outdoor performance of Shakespeare’s As You Like It.  Performance dates are July 2, 3, 8, 9, 10, and 11 at 8 p.m. Performances will move indoors to the College’s Shea Theatre in the event of inclement weather.

Matinee performances are July 5, 8, and 12 at 2 p.m. in the Shea Theatre.

For more information call the LISF office 631-451-4163 or find us on the web at LIShakes.org

As You Like It: Love grows on trees! If a nasty uncle banishes you from court, it’s wise to take your favorite cousin and a clown along for the ride. When Rosalind and her entourage seek refuge in the Forest of Arden, they encounter an unlikely lot of woodland denizens—including Orlando, the man Rosalind loves. Disguised as a boy, Rosalind teaches Orlando how to woo her! Celebrating one of Shakespeare’s most glorious feminine creations, this joyful comedy is filled with identities at play and shrewd observations about human nature.

Suffolk County Community College Chancellor Award winners who travelled to Albany on April 2, back row: Larissa Ellerman, Steven Curcio. Front Row: Tricia Wildman, Brianna DiPaola, Julie Heitleband, Carmeline Jean-Francois, Brittany Improte, Satoko Matthews.

Thirteen distinguished Suffolk County Community College students were presented with the 2015 Chancellor’s Awards for Student Excellence at an Albany ceremony hosted by SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher on April 2.

“We are proud of our students who SUNY has publicly proclaimed its pride in,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay. “The students selected for this honor are role models within the College and SUNY community,” Dr. McKay added.
The Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence was created in 1997 to recognize students who have best demonstrated, and have been recognized for, the integration of academic excellence with accomplishments in the areas of leadership, athletics, community service, creative and performing arts, campus involvement, or career achievement.

Each year, SUNY campus presidents establish a selection committee, which reviews the accomplishments of exemplary students. Nominees are then forwarded to the Chancellor’s Office for a second round of review. Finalists are then recommended to the Chancellor to become recipients of the award. Each recipient receives a framed certificate and medallion, which is traditionally worn at commencement.
