Global Warming: Cause and Consequence

Thursday Aug 26, 2010 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM This is a past program

Jeff Biggers, the author of Reckoning at Eagle Creek: The Secret Legacy of Coal in the Heartland joins us to discuss the environmental consequences of extracting coal for generating electricity. Providing further analysis of the consequences of global warming is Cleo Paskal, who specializes in the geopolitical, security, and economic implications of environmental change. She is a Fellow at the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House, London, and a consultant for the U.S. Department of Energy. Her latest book is Global Warring: How Environmental, Economic, and Political Crises Will Redraw the World Map.

Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss.

Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelly, an anonymous donor, the Hammer Programs Committee, and Susan and Leonard Nimoy.
