Video: “Is Global Warming on the Back Burner? Prospects for Change”

Watch video of Mike Vandenbergh, professor of law and director, Climate Change Research Network; Michael Bess, Chancellor’s Professor of History; and Beth Conklin, associate professor of anthropology, speaking at the Dec. 8, 2010, Thinking Out of the (Lunch) Box.

The financial crisis and difficult economic times have shifted the cultural spotlight away from global warming and climate change. Can we rely on technological innovation to save the day? Or do we need dramatic changes in our consumerist lifestyle? What will we tell our children and grandchildren if we fail them? This Lunchbox event is a moderated panel discussion among three of Vanderbilt’s experts on this topic.

Vanderbilt University partners with the Nashville Public Library for the Thinking Out of the (Lunch) Box series. A series of lunchtime talks with a philosophical flavor.
