Michigan Energy Forum – A Pragmatic Approach to Climate Change (Feb. 6)

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s fifth report was written by 831 experts and comprises the research of thousands of the world’s leading scientists.

This event will take place Thursday, Feb. 6 from 5 – 7 p.m. at 330 E. Liberty, Lower Level, Ann Arbor.

Among their findings, they concluded that “warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and since the 1950s, many of the observed changes are unprecedented over decades to millennia. The atmosphere and ocean have warmed, the amounts of snow and ice have diminished, sea level has risen, and the concentrations of greenhouse gases have increased.”

Faced with these assertions, what can be done? How can the differences between scientific recommendations and practice be reconciled? Join this panel for a pragmatic discussion on what the options are moving forward from commercial, policy, and scientific perspectives.
