Video Report: China-U.S. Climate Change Forum

From Google Video: Opening Session – The University, Scientific Research, and Climate Change

The China-U.S. Climate Change Forum was organized by the Berkeley China Initiative, which is forging closer ties between U.C. Berkeley and China by bringing together key experts on important international and bilateral issues. Growing concern over climate change makes this topic an obvious choice for the first of this series of annual events. This panel highlights the mutual vulnerability of China and the U.S. to climate change, and the indispensable role of scientific research in understanding the problem and developing solutions. Panelists include: Robert Birgeneau, University of California at Berkeley; Richard Blum, UC Board of Regents; Steve Chu, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory; C.S. Kiang, Peking University. The Forum is co-sponsored by Peking University’s College of Environmental Sciences and UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, International and Area Studies, Institute of East Asian Studies, Center for Chinese Studies, Energy and Resources Group, and Berkeley Institute of the Environment. Financial sponsors include the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Fund, the Energy Foundation, and the Hewlett Foundation. [Click to see]
