George Mason University’s multidisciplinary approach to tackling climate change will be on full display on April 22 when a panel of researchers gathers on the Fairfax Campus at the Johnson Center Cinema to discuss the many facets of the problem and how to best address them.

“Climate 3.0: The Science, the Politics and the Policy Agenda” includes a thorough examination of the issue of climate change in the form of discussing the science itself, policy and communication. University Professor Jagadish Shukla, who is also the managing director of the Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies (COLA), will oversee the special Earth Day event, which will run from 3 to 6 p.m., and include renowned panelists such as Thomas Lovejoy, Andrew Light, Tyler Cowen, Jim Kinter and Ed Maibach. Robinson Professor and Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Steve Pearlstein will serve as the panel’s moderator.
