URI women have a lot to talk about after loss

February 16, 2011

KINGSTON – There was a lot Cathy Inglese could have been talking about for the 30-plus minutes following the University of Rhode Island women’s basketball team’s 64-43 loss to Fordham Wednesday night.
She could have been yelling about the fact the Rams shot just 35.4 percent from the floor, or that they were outrebounded 37-28, or that they were outscored 51-23 in the final 25:10 of the game. She may have been discussing geopolitics, fashion trends or how the fans must have felt to watch a truly awful performance.

As recently as Tuesday a climate change denier from Oklahoma, Senator Inhofe, and the former head of the Environmental Protection Agency squared off at the Republican-led EPA hearings. But while Congress debates, the science is in, carbon is rising, and the clock is ticking. Town planning departments across the state map flood zones and develop strategies for withstanding future floods which result from a changing climate. Meanwhile, undergraduate and graduate students at Brown's Center for Environmental Studies are working to analyze local events including past floods and are developing strategies for a sustainable environment.
