Tackling Climate Change Nationally and Globally

October 23, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Hammer Museum

10899 Wilshire Blvd

Los Angeles, CA 90024

Despite the overwhelming scientific consensus that global warming is a danger to the planet, little progress has been made to reduce CO2 emissions. Climatologists Brenda Ekwurzel and Michael Mann join us to examine the issue. Ekwurzel works with the Union of Concerned Scientists leading education aimed at increasing support for strong climate legislation. Mann shared the Nobel Prize with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and is the author of The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches From The Front Lines and Dire Predictions: Understanding Global Warming.
