Pizza & Prof: "The Politics of Global Warming in the United States"

Date: 
Tue, 09/27/2011 - 5:45pm to 7:00pm
Event Description: 

"The Politics of Global Warming in the United States"

 

Raymond Bradley will discuss the politics involved in the United States addressing, or failing to address, the issue of global warming.

 

The issue of global warming is being manipulated by those with financial interests in making sure that the United States does not enact legislation to control greenhouse gas emissions.  Elsewhere, many countries have embraced the opportunity to reduce energy consumption, implement conservation strategies and promote new technologies that involve energy production from non-carbon based fuels. Politicians who embrace these strategies represent the future; those who don't will become footnotes in history.
