The weekly Public Affairs Discussion Group will continue this Friday with a talk titled “Are We Doomed? Climate Change and What We Are Really Doing About It.”
Jessica Green, assistant professor of political science, will lead the discussion on Friday, Jan. 24, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the Dampeer Room at Kelvin Smith Library.
Green’s book on climate change, Rethinking Private Authority: Agents and Entrepreneurs in Global Environmental Governance, examines the role of nongovernmental organizations and firms as de facto regulators—creating their own rules to address climate change—even in the absence of government. She will survey the landscape on what’s good news and what’s not, and where we are headed.
Since 1989, faculty, emeriti, students and staff have gathered on Fridays for a brown-bag lunch and to discuss topics in public affairs.
