Environmental Policy in Historical Perspective

Event date/time: 

Thursday, November 12, 2020 - 6:00pm

Panel Discussion with Bill McKibben, Robert Pollin, Ashwin Ravikumar, Thea Riofrancos & Eve Vogel
We have only a few years left to make deep cuts to greenhouse gas emissions. This event will reflect on the implications of the U.S. election results for meeting this imperative. What are the prospects for a Green New Deal and other urgently needed measures, in the United States and beyond? How can the destructive power of the fossil fuel industries be neutralized? The panelists will analyze the current moment while also offering a historical perspective on environmental policy and movements.

This event will be live and recorded on Zoom, Facebook and YouTube. Spanish interpretation and closed captioning will be available.

Part of the UMass History Department's 2020-21 Feinberg Series: Planet on a Precipice: Histories and Futures of the Environmental Emergency
