Washington Post writer on campus to talk climate change

BLOOMSBURG— Bloomsburg University will present a lecture by Chris Mooney, a Washington Post energy and environment writer, on “Climate Change: The Race with Physics” in Carver Hall’s Gross Auditorium on Wednesday, April 18, at 7 p.m.

Mooney’s presentation will examine the relationship between the effects of climate change and current political efforts to protect the environment. Representatives describe his talk as “the heart of the question that matters to future generations — how fast is change coming, and can our political systems still move to stop it.”

His work often focuses on the intersection of science and politics and has appeared in WiredScienceHarper’sSeed and the New Scientist.
