Great Decisions Lecture Series Climate Change and the Global Order Thursday, February 20 Community Meeting Room, Lynchburg Public Library Light Refreshments: 2:30 – 3:00 p.m.; Presentations: 3:00 – 4:00 p.m
Dr. Greg Haugan, retired Senior Executive Service Bureau Director in the US Department of Transportation and Group Leader of the Lynchburg Chapter of the Citizens Climate Lobby
Climate change has become one of the defining issues of our time. As much of the world bands together to come up with a plan, namely around the Paris Accord, the U.S. remains the notable holdout. What is the rest of the world doing to combat climate change? How is the current world order changing? What impact will the effects of climate change have on global geopolitics? What are the major decisions that need to be made? What are the options?
