Defending the Hudson River
Engaging in one of the most potentially volatile Hudson River controversies in years, Pace University Environmental Policy Clinic students participated in an official US Coast Guard process of governance and policy.
This November, Christina Thomas ’19, Environmental Studies, and Margaret (Peggy) Doyle ’19, Economics, were invited by the US Coast Guard to be official observers at a Port and Waterway Safety Assessment (PAWSA) workshop in Poughkeepsie, New York. It was the first public step in studying a Coast Guard plan to permit 43 special anchorages on the Hudson River where commercial ships, many carrying petroleum products, could drop anchor.
Associate Professor of Environmental Studies Anne Toomey, PhD, was the featured guest on an episode titled “From Persuasion to Connection: Better Communication of Environmental Science.”
