“Global climate change is a concern that affects all of us and cuts across a wide range of disciplines of study,” said Kent Neuerburg, interim director of the Honors Program. “This lecture will focus specifically on the economic aspects of climatic change, a key factor in helping governments, agencies and organizations deal with this international issue.”
