Dates: July 25-27
Instructor: Michael Burnett
BUSINESS AS USUAL IS NOT CLIMATE AS USUAL! Organizations and individuals ignore climate change at their own peril. Climate change is the key driver behind the shift to the “New Energy Economy.” Climate science, economics, solutions, and politics all have profound implications for competitiveness and success as we face what has been called the greatest business challenge of our time. Science tells us that a business as usual approach leads to great disruptions of our climate system, natural ecosystems, our economy, and global political stability. Yet the US has failed to enact comprehensive climate legislation. This course puts this conundrum – and climate change – in meaningful perspective.
