05may12:00 pm1:30 pmGlobal Climate Change: Implications for National and Global Energy Policies

Event Details

While the public is coming to grips with the reality of human-caused global climate change, U.S. energy policies have yet to catch up.

The scientific and engineering communities, though long aware of the climate problem, have “failed miserably” to affect energy policies in ways that could have minimized the impact of climate change, according to James Hansen, a longtime climate advocate and Director of Columbia University’s Climate Science, Awareness, and Solutions Program. Hansen will explore that history in a May 5 lecture organized by the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

This lecture will kick off an iSEE Critical Conversation — “The Role of Nuclear Power in a Clean Energy Future” — originally scheduled for May 2020 in Chicago. The Institute and the Department of Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering are pleased to host this vital discussion on the future of global energy, economy, and climate.
