Renowned climatologist and Nobel laureate Richard Alley talked about climate change, alternative energy options and more in a recent interview with Kirk Heinze, '70, that will air on the Sunday, April 20 episode of Greening of the Great Lakes on WJR (760-AM Detroit). The program airs at 7 p.m.
Alley, who is the Evan Pugh Professor of Geosciences and associate of the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute at The Pennsylvania State University, will deliver the Joseph S. Calvaruso Keynote on April 24 to cap the 25th Elkin R. Isaac Student Research Symposium at Albion College. The title of his lecture is "A Brighter Light at the End of the Tunnel: The Optimistic Future of Energy and Environment."
A member of the National Academy of Sciences who has advised presidential and U.S. Senate panels, Alley is also the presenter for PBS' Earth: The Operators’ Manual. As a participant in the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, he was a co-recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.
Heinze wrote about Alley's interview earlier this week on MLive.com. Visit the Greening of the Great Lakes and Isaac Symposium websites for more information on the radio program and symposium, respectively.
