Global environmental challenges
Climate experts on Copenhagen
If we can predict one thing about the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen it’s that no one will have all the answers.
But there will be plenty of questions.
To help cut through the tide, Reuters has gathered a panel of some of the world’s leading thinkers on climate change.
Throughout the conference, Reuters.com will publish questions relating to news as it breaks in Copenhagen as well as overarching solutions to global warming. Answers from the panelists will lead the discussion.
Our assembly of academics, scientists and politicians includes:
Dr. David Suzuki, award-winning geneticist and journalist
Dr. Raymond Pierrehumbert, Louis Block Professor in geophysical sciences at the University of Chicago
Dr. Gidon Eshel, physics professor, Bard College
Karen Alderman Harbert, President and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for 21st Century Energy
Bjorn Lomborg, author of The Skeptical Environmentalist
Saleem Huq, Senior Fellow, Climate Change, at the International Institute for Environment and Development
Kim Carstensen, leader of the World Wildlife Fund Global Climate Initiative.
What questions do you have for the panel?
