Himadri Pakrasi, PhD, the Myron and Sonya Glassberg/Albert and Blanche Greensfelder Distinguished University Professor and director of the International Center for Advanced Renewable Energy and Sustainability (I-CARES),
sat down recently with Peter H. Raven, PhD. Raven is the George
Engelmann Professor of Botany Emeritus in Arts & Sciences and
president emeritus of the Missouri Botanical Garden. The two had a conversation about the Washington University Climate Change Initiative (WUCCI).
WUCCI is an I-CARES signature program led by Raven. He and Pakrasi discussed questions such as:
Why is it important that the university launch a climate initiative now? What will it accomplish? How will climate change impact all of our lives in the future? What coursework will accompany the initiative?
