May 27: Reunions Debate on Climate Policy

Welcome back to Nassau Hall, Whig-Clio alumni!! Along with the Class of 1976, in celebration of their 40th Reunion, Whig-Clio is excited to host an alumni-student debate on the motion: This House believes the only way to address climate change in the world is through co-leadership with the U.S. and China. Tucker Jones ’16 will speak in favor of the motion and Evan Draim ’16 will speak against it and each will be paired with two alumni experts. Thank you to Josh Libresco, Class of 1976, for working with us to make such a wonderful event happen!

We hope to see you in the Whig Senate Chamber Friday afternoon for a good debate and of course some pounding and hissing. There will also be a cookies platter from Olives!
