Catastrophic climate change is rapidly heading our way. It will happen much sooner and be far worse than is generally understood...and can only be solved / managed globally (by global citizens).Well within the lifetime of undergraduates, climate change is likely to become the most pressing problem facing humanity. This panel will generate a discussion on climate change...including how we will feed current students in the coming decades (as planetary climate changes); and how scientists could do a better job of informing politicians (and the public) about climate change.
