Confronting the Challenges of Climate Change

October 16, 2018 12:00 AM

Beckman Institute Auditorium

The Beckman Institute focuses on the issue of climate change in a tribute to Ted Brown’s 1971 book, "Energy and the Environment." Dr. Brown has long been interested in how our energy consumption is affecting the world we live in, and we invite you to take part in the discussion.

The symposium follows the annual Beckman-Brown Lecture on Interdisciplinary Science (3 pm Monday, October 15, 2018).
