Coplan will offer readings from his book Live Sustainably Now: A Low-Carbon Vision of the Good Life (Columbia University Press, Fall 2019) and practical advice on how to reduce your carbon footprint. 

After graduating from Columbia Law School in 1984, he clerked for The Honorable Warren E. Burger, chief justice of the United States. Professor Coplan will give practical advice from his book on why and how everyone can reduce their carbon footprint, including everything from how you eat, commute, and run your house, to life enriching travel and recreation.  Coplan leads by example, having routinely commuted to work across the Hudson River to White Plains via kayak and bicycle for over twenty years.
