EnviroThursday - "Who Will Really Solve the Climate Challenge?"

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Thursday Mar 9, 2017
Olin-Rice Science Center 250

Speaker:  Tim Nixon, Managing Editor of Sustainability, Thomson Reuters

Despite what you read in the news about nation states rising to the challenge of climate change, it was unlikely under the Obama administration that the Paris accord would keep warming within acceptable limits, and it is even less likely under the Trump administration.  So who or what will rise to the challenge?  This talk is about some of the latest developments in addressing the climate crisis, and why there is still a reason for hope, and action.

Tim Nixon has ongoing engagement with leaders across a wide spectrum of NGO and private-sector partners.  He has spoken at global policy-making events, including the World Bank Land and Poverty Conference, UN PRI Annual Meeting, and the first global meeting of United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA).
