Professor Brian Salvatore

He is an LSU chemistry professor who has recently been outspoken on the dangers and options in the disposal of explosives at Camp Minden. But for several years his passions have been the big picture in Louisiana – having written insightful reports from his visits to the coast – as well as education in the Bayou State.

Salvatore is speaking Wed, April 29, at First Presbyterian Church about Louisiana’s current coastal crisis. Typical of Salvatore, the topic, Louisiana Coastal Catastrophe, is to be addressed pro-actively as “The Crisis and Possible Remedies.”

He says of solutions, “Political hurdles remain, but there are reasons for optimism. We must ask our leaders to find the financial resources to address the challenges.”
