The Heat Is On: the Climate Crisis, the Cover-Up, the Prescription

February 28, 2001 - 12:00pm
Bldg. 90
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

Author Ross Gelbspan will present a brief update of the science of climate change, review anticipated economic impacts and examine some responses of the fossil fuel and auto industries to the climate issue. He will also detail political divisions on the diplomatic front, offer a preliminary assessment of prospects for action in the Bush Administration, and present a set of "macro-level solutions strategies."  Ross Gelbspan retired several years ago after a 31-year career in journalism as a reporter and editor at The Philadelphia Bulletin, The Washington Post and The Boston Globe. At the Globe as special projects editor, he conceived, directed and edited a series of articles that won a Pulitzer Prize in 1984. Since publishing the book "The Heat Is On: The High Stakes Battle Over Earth's Threatened Climate" in 1997, Mr. Gelbspan has been actively promoting his solution strategies to the climate crisis. He has presented his strategies to a wide audience, including Senators, Congressmen, and delegates to the recent climate talks at The Hague. The "strategies" have been endorsed by large NGOs in India, Mexico, Germany, Bangladesh and elsewhere - as well as by a number of economists, energy specialists and environmentalists both in the U.S. and abroad.
