Dr. Kahn will give a talk on his new book, “Climatopolis.” The book focuses on cities as the loci of economic and lifestyle adaptations to global climate change. Cautiously optimistic, Kahn argues that market forces will both change the face of our cities and ultimately provide solutions to the challenges imposed by global warming.

A different faculty member presents their research and publications at every meeting, making the FRS a source of diverse perspectives on some of the most important issues of today. This year’s speakers come from departments across UCLA, including the Institute of the Environment, the Anderson School of Management and the UCLA Law School. A light lunch will be provided for those in attendance. Please RSVP before the date of the event.
