Panel Discussion: Bipartisan Climate Solutions

A moderated discussion about bipartisan climate solutions, with Reps. Joe Neguse (Colorado) and John Curtis (Utah)

Please join U.S. representatives Joe Neguse (D-Colorado, in person) and John Curtis (R-Utah, virtual) in a panel discussion about bipartisan climate solutions. Learn about the lawmakers' motivations for working on climate change issues, where they see opportunities for building consensus on efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change, and thoughts on reducing the political polarization of the issue. Recent CU Boulder Environmental Studies graduate Renae Marshall and CIRES Fellow Matt Burgess, Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies and the 2021-2022 Benson Center Faculty Fellow, will moderate.

This event is co-sponsored by CIRES and the Bruce D. Benson Center for the Study of Western Civilization.
