Topic: Global Warming ? The Problems, Our Current Efforts, and A New Approach

Speaker: Felipe Witchger

What are the causes and near-term impacts of global warming? What are the implications for water supply, agriculture, forests, the oceans, spread of diseases, human migration, foreign relations, terrorism, war?

What is the current state of US and International climate policy development? What happened in Copenhagen and what?s going to happen next? What?s good and bad about cap-and-trade and carbon offsets? Will the US Congress pass climate policy this year or next? Where does the environmental movement stand today?

Where are our greenhouse gas emissions coming from? How can we make our energy, food, and transportation systems more sustainable? What are the key challenges in transitioning to renewable energy? What might help to move this process along? What do energy companies think about all this?

What do mainstream economists and their critics think about global warming? What can we do personally and collectively? What is happening locally?

These questions and more will be answered by Felipe Witchger.
