Environmental Defense head to speak on global warming, April 1
Posted March 28, 2003; 02:56 p.m.
Fred Krupp, executive director of Environmental Defense, will discuss "Global Warming and the USA: Sparking Re-engagement" at 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 1, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall.
Environmental Defense , a nonprofit organization based in New York, represents more than 300,000 members. Since 1967, it has linked science, economics and law to create solutions to society's environmental problems. Krupp has been head of the organization since 1984.
As the international community proceeds to implement the Kyoto Protocol, the United States has rejected the treaty. Krupp is expected to discuss what likely will spark the United States to re-engage in the international process, given domestic economic and political conditions.
The talk, designated as the Taplin Environmental Lecture, is sponsored by the Princeton Environmental Institute .
