Our series is over, but the challenges remain.
Climate Change. Challenges. Solutions.
Climate Change. Challenges. Solutions. is a special series presented by Cognoscenti and the School of Public Policy & Urban Affairs at Northeastern University. Each week we will focus on one critical aspect of climate change. Experts in that area will examine the issues from the perspectives of science, technology, policy, law and ethics. Join the conversation on Twitter at #OCNEU.

Congressional action on climate change may be stalled, but the Pentagon is taking a leading role. Rear Adm. David Titley explains why melting glaciers and rising sea levels constitute a dire threat to national security.
Could the widespread use of energy efficient technologies stem the rising tide of climate change? Our experts weigh in.
It’s too late to stop climate change in its tracks, but there are things we can do to reduce and eventually stabilize greenhouse gas emissions.
It’s one thing to try to reduce your own, personal carbon footprint. But what if you’re a giant multinational corporation? Three business leaders outline what their companies are doing.
Climate change is a thorny political issue. Some say without prompt action, the future is looking hot and dangerous. Others don’t even believe the threat is real, let alone urgent.
