Combating Climate Change
Senator Sheldon Whitehouse
Monday, January 28, 2008
Salomon Hall, Room 101
Whitehouse has been a strong advocate for environmental protection, health, and conservation throughout his career. He has argued before the U.S. Supreme Court to protect public wetlands from development and sued to block Bush administration efforts to weaken the Clean Air Act. In the Senate, he is a cosponsor of legislation that would significantly reduce global warming pollutants, and has pushed for further inquiry into the security implications of climate change.
Senator Whitehouse's lecture kicked off "Focus the Nation," a week of climate-related events at Brown.
