MIAMI, April 8, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Kerri L. Barsh, co-chair of the Environmental Practice at global law firm Greenberg Traurig, P.A., will present during the University of Miami’s Distinguished Alumni Lecture Series webinar, “In Hot Water: Finding Ocean-Based Solutions to the Climate Crisis,” to be held virtually April 12.

The event will bring together a panel of notable University of Miami alumni experts to share their perspectives on the climate crisis and how we can solve it by working together. The discussion will explore ways the ocean can offer a wide range of potential climate solutions that focus on mitigation and adaptation strategies, including ocean-based renewable energy, blue carbon sequestration, and net zero shipping.

Erica Mule, chief of staff for science planning and operations at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Southeast Fisheries Science Center, will serve as moderator. Barsh’s fellow speakers include:

  • Stacy Aguilera-Peterson, ocean policy specialist at the National Science Foundation.
  • Pedro N. Dinezio, climate scientist and associate professor of atmospheric and ocean sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder.
  • Galen Treuer, resilience coordinator for strategic outcomes for Miami-Dade County.

“As we continue to see the climate crisis threatening many species, food security, ecosystems, and livelihood sources, it is critical that we appreciate and discuss our connection to the largest climate regulator on earth – the ocean,” Barsh said. “This panel, with three other distinguished University of Miami alumni, is an excellent start to discuss ways the ocean can be a key component in solving this global crisis.”

Based in Greenberg Traurig’s Miami office, Barsh represents public and private clients on an array of environmental regulatory, permitting and litigation matters. She advises on climate change, wetlands and coastal permitting, and complex land use projects as well as energy and infrastructure projects. Barsh serves as a key legal advisor for clients navigating the complex range of compliance issues and enforcement cases that affect land development throughout Florida and nationally.
