Hosted by Marketplace and The Gary Comer Global Agenda
Climate and Sustainability: Moving by Degrees was a national, interactive, day-long symposium that brought the nation’s top scientists, policymakers and business leaders together with reporters from public radio and commercial stations from around the nation.
Attendees included: Dr. Michael Mann (Pennsylvania State University), Dr. Ben Santer (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory), Eileen Claussen (President, Pew Center on Global Climate Change), author Stewart Brand (Founder, Whole Earth Review), award-winning journalist Andrew Revkin (Blogger, New York Times), Bud Ward (Editor, Yale Forum on Climate Change and The Media), and more.
This event was aimed at bringing together journalists and the public online and at Southern California Public Radio’s (SCPR) Crawford Family Forum to decipher fact from fiction, to learn how our scientific understanding has evolved, and to understand where politics, science and business agree and diverge on how to create a sustainable future.
