Harvard professor gives global warming talk
Theda Skocpol, world-renowned sociologist and political scientist at Harvard University, is coming to the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa to share her views on global warming and the green economy. Her free, public lecture, Countering Extremism and Engaging Americans in the Fight against Global Warming, will be held at Mānoa’s Art Auditorium on Tuesday, March 12, 6 p.m.
Skocpol’s lecture will address the issues of global warming, the recent failure by Congress to enact “cap and trade” to reduce carbon emissions, and the next steps needed to move America toward a green economy.
“We are pleased to host Professor Skocpol at this event. She is an engaging speaker, whose research in the areas of social policy and civic engagement is both influential and transformative,” said Denise Konan, dean of the College of Social Sciences.
Doors to the public lecture will open at 5:30 p.m. for the 6 p.m. event. Seating is limited and will be on a first-come, first-served basis. On-campus parking is available for $6.
