Bentley Schools 2nd Annual Science Thought Leaders Night

Please join us on Tuesday, February 25 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM for Bentley School's 2nd Annual Science Thought Leaders Night. Bentley School will welcome an esteemed interdisciplinary panel of experts who will discuss the topic of climate change.

The panel discussion will focus on the latest climate change science, how climate change, if left unchecked, is projected to impact humans worldwide, and the role that science, policy, economics and technology all can play in curbing the increase of greenhouse gas emissions, which are believed to be responsible for our warming planet.

The panel will be discussing questions posed by Bentley students and faculty.  There will be a 30 minute closing session during which the audience may ask additional questions to the panelists.

The panelists include:

       Dr. William Collins, Senior Scientist, Head of the Climate Sciences Department, and Director of the Center for Integrative Modeling of the Earth System (CLIMES), at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL)
