The Challenge of Climate Change

Georgetown's Global Futures Initiative is convening a semester-long conversation around "The Global Future of the Environment."

A diverse group of academics and practitioners will offer responses to key topics from each lecture on this blog. This week, Georgetown faculty and students address the many dimensions of the global climate change challenge, including scientific, technological, economic, social, political, and ethical factors.
