Environmental Politics Class to Host Mock Senate Hearing on Climate Change Legislation

Students in Government 285: Introduction to Environmental Politics, led by Visiting Assistant Professor of Government Peter Cannavo, will hold a mock Senate hearing on climate change legislation on Wednesday, Dec. 5, from 4 – 7:30 p.m. in the Red Pit in the Kirner-Johnson Building. Cannavo says that attendees to this event should "expect informative expert testimony, spirited debate, self-serving political grandstanding and fascinating presentations covering everything climate-related, from distributive justice to alternative fuels to White House policy to oil reserves to international relations." This event is free and open to the public.

Cannavo is the author of The Working Landscape: Founding, Preservation, and the Politics of Place, a book that examines the conflict between development and preservation as a major factor behind our contemporary crisis of place.
