Wallace House Presented
the 34th Graham Hovey Lecture with McKenzie Funk
“Seeing Green: The Business and Inequity of Climate Change”
While the issue of climate change rises in importance to the U.S. electorate, players in energy, banking and business are cashing in on the environmental crisis. McKenzie Funk, a 2012 Knight-Wallace Fellow, is the author of “Windfall: The Booming Business of Global Warming.” Watch for a critical discussion of drought, rising seas, profiteering and the hardest truth about climate change: It’s not equally bad for everyone.
