Bjorn Lomborg, adjunct professor at the Copenhagen Business School and founder of Copenhagen Consensus Center, will deliver the 2014 University Lecture titled, "Prioritizing Our Greatest Problems Versus Prioritizing Our Efforts to Find Solutions."
Bjorn Lomborg has simple advice for addressing environmental challenges: find the smartest approaches and focus on them. He has shared that credo in commentaries for major newspapers and in appearances on major networks. His best-selling book, The Skeptical Environmentalist, challenges widely held beliefs that the environment is getting worse. His 2007 release, Cool It: The Skeptical Environmentalist's Guide to Global Warming, further analyzes what today's science tells us about global warming and its risks. He was named one of the world's 100 most influential people by Time magazine in 2007.
Monday, Feb. 24, from 5 to 6 p.m.
Alden Memorial on the WPI campus, 100 Institute Road, Worcester, Mass.
Sponsored by the Office of the President, the University Lecture Series provides a forum for speakers of national and international importance to enhance scholarly and scientific learning and to stimulate the intellectual climate of the university and surrounding communities.
The University Lecture is free and open to the public.
