1 min read

Indivisible Beaufort and Lowcountry Indivisible representing Bluffton and Hilton Head will meet together, Saturday, Oct. 13, to hear a presentation on climate change from one of the University of South Carolina’s leading researchers on the timely topic.

Professor Geoffrey Scott will speak on “Climate Change and Coastal Urbanization: A Recipe for Disaster for Coastal Ecosystems and Human Health.”

As chairman of USC’s Deptartment of Environmental Health Studies, Scott has done extensive research with NOAA on various coastal issues including the long-term impacts of oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico.

His work is widely published and he has been recognized with numerous awards, including Outstanding Research Award in Public Health from USC, NOAA Unit Citation for the Ixtoc Oil Spill Research, the NOAA Administrators’ Award for leadership in directing research, and the NOAA Peer Rafting Award for leading research on Vibrio bacterial hazards posed to workers during the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill.

The meeting will be held Saturday, Oct. 13, at 10 a.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Bluffton, 110 Malphrus Road, Bluffton.

The Indivisible groups are non-partisan organizations of local residents who believe this nation embodies rights and respect for all. The groups are working to ensure those rights and freedoms remain available to everyone.
