Institute Jump-starts Climate Change Conversation
Award-winning videographer Peter Sinclair travels the world with climate scientists. He’ll be here at 7 p.m. tomorrow (Jan. 29) at the Rozsa Center to present a free public event, "Climate Challenges and Solutions 2020."
He’s also looking forward to connecting with Michigan Tech researchers during his visit.
“Michigan Tech is one of the country’s great engineering and science institutions, and I am working to communicate not only climate change, but the solutions that are emerging and being deployed,” he said. “I hope to be talking to experts on topics of wind and solar energy, energy storage, microgrids, as well as climate impacts on the Great Lakes,” Sinclair said, adding that promoting renewable energy climate solutions is an important part of his work. “Michigan is becoming a hotbed for wind and solar energy, and of course the fossil fuel industry has been pushing back with misinformation."
While here, Sinclair also plans to revisit some places he’s never seen in the winter. “Keweenaw is one of my favorite places on the planet, a place I have come back to many, many times in years past,” he said.
For more details on the visit, sponsored by our Institute for Policy, Ethics, and Culture as the opener for its Spring 2020 Designing the Anthropocene series, see the story on Michigan Tech News.
