YCELP, YCEI Launch Climate and Energy Bookshelf Speaker Series

| Share

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Berkeley School of Law Professor Andrew Guzman will be at Yale Law School Thursday, February 28, to discuss his new book Overheated: The Human Cost of Climate Change, which explores the real-world consequences of climate change.

Professor Guzman holds a Ph.D. in economics as well as a J.D. from Harvard University, and he has written extensively on international trade, international regulatory matters, foreign direct investment and public international law. In Overheated, he assumes a 2-degree Celsius increase in average global temperatures and explores how even that modest change might play out in flooding, prolonged drought and increased violence.

The talk, co-hosted by the Yale Climate & Energy Institute (YCEI) and the Yale Center for Environmental Law and Policy (YCELP), begins at 6:10 PM at Yale Law School (Room 121) located at 127 Wall Street, New Haven, Conn., 06511; it is free and open to the public.

The event comes as part of a year-long effort spearheaded by YCEI to address many aspects of climate change from science to law and policy. As part of this effort YCELP is presenting a diverse speaker series entitled The Climate and Energy Bookshelf featuring new and forthcoming publications by renowned climate and energy scholars including University of Colorado School of Law Professor Sarah A. Krakoff, Duke University School of Law Professor Jedediah Purdy, and Pulitzer Prize winning author Daniel Yergin, Vice Chairman of IHS and Founder of Cambridge Energy Research Associates.
