A Guest Lecture on U.S. Climate Politics by Eric Pooley, author of The Climate War: True Believers, Power Brokers, and the Fight to Save the Earth
Thursday, February 10
Kroon Hall - Burke Auditorium

Eric Pooley is the deputy edtor of Bloomberg BusinessWeek, past managing editor of Fortune, and former chief political correspondent at Time. The Climate War, his narative account of the fight to pass meaningful global warming legislation, has been described as “a cliffhanger” and “the first true insider’s account” by the Boston Globe, and “a fascinating look at how Washington works” by the New York Times. Eric has appeared on Nightline, Charlie Rose, The CBS Evening News, NBC Nightly News, Anderson Cooper 360, All Things Considered, and many other programs.

“A riveting tale, the very first account of the epic American campaign to get serious about global warming.”   —President Bill Clinton
