- Three cheers for Professor David Levy, who was selected for the Chancellor's Award for Distinguished Scholarship for his stellar research on climate change and sustainability.
U.N. climate chief Christiana Figueres kicked off our Climate at a Crossroads lecture series. More than any single person, Figueres shepherded the COP 21 agreements in Paris to their historic conclusion.
