IU's Michael Hamburger presents: “Climatology Meets Foreign Policy: One Hoosier’s Perspective on International Climate Action in the State Department”
On Wednesday, September 28 at 6 pm Michael Hamburger, Professor of Geological Studies at IU, will present a talk entitled, “Climatology Meets Foreign Policy: One Hoosier’s Perspective on International Climate Action in the State Department”. Hamburger spent the 2015-16 academic year in Washington, DC as a Jefferson Science Fellow, where he worked at the State Department, working at the intersection of science and foreign policy. Working as a senior advisor in the Department’s Office of Religion and Global Affairs, Hamburger had an unusual first-hand perspective on the creation of policy on global environmental issues, climate change, and disaster risk reduction. He participated in State Department efforts in the lead-up to, and the aftermath of, the COP-21 Climate talks in Paris. This Green Drinks presentation will examine the intriguing intersection between science, religion, and U.S. climate policy in a remarkable year of climate advocacy and action.
