The Changing Conversation on Climate

Posted on June 25, 2013 at 2:30pm 0 Comments

Many Americans have long waited for the President to clarify and deepen his position on how the United States should move forward on climate change. In the years since the George W. Bush administration abandoned the Kyoto Protocol, American engagement on the issue has been uneven, and voters have been only episodically motivated by concerns about Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina or about wildfires and droughts. President Obama's last-minute intervention in the United Nations Framework Convention…

Hi, I am Jing Shiyuan from China. I am a junior student of East China University of Political Science and Law in Shanghai. My major is economic law and minor in finance. I'm interested in renewable energy law. And I do care about the environment protection and the mass conflicts caused by energy which leads to many severe problems.

I came to America 2 weeks ago with the China Future Leadership Programme and had the chance to know Professor Steve Kelman from Harvard and Professor Ronald McKinnon from Stanford. Recently we are discussing about the North Korean issues and China's dollar exchange rate through e-mails. 

I am a wild girl with great passions in almost everthing  and I really hope that I could communicate with you through e-mails. My e-mail address is jingshiyuan8@yahoo.com.cn.

The Crack-Up: Dwight Eisenhower & the Road Trip that Changed America, with Brian C. Black

In 1919, a young Army officer named Dwight Eisenhower, along with a "Mad Max"-style military convoy, set out on a cross-country road trip to examine the nascent state of America's roads. Penn State Altoona's Professor Brian C. Black explains how this trip influenced Eisenhower's decisions decades later, both as general and president, and laid the groundwork for the rise of petroleum-based engines and the interstate highway system.

AI in the Arctic: Future Opportunities & Ethical Concerns, with Fritz Allhoff

How can artificial intelligence improve food security, medicine, and infrastructure in Arctic communities? What are some logistical, ethical, and governance challenges? Western Michigan's Professor Fritz Allhoff details the future of technology in this extreme environment, which is being made more accessible because of climate change. Plus he shares his thoughts on some open philosophical questions surrounding AI.

The Ethical Algorithm, with Michael Kearns

Over the course of a generation, algorithms have gone from mathematical abstractions to powerful mediators of daily life. They have made our lives more efficient, yet are increasingly encroaching on our basic rights. UPenn's Professor Michael Kearns shares some ideas on how to better embed human principles into machine code without halting the advance of data-driven scientific exploration.
