The Council on the Environment will host Dr. Lester R. Brown in their Annual Distinguished Lecture Series on the Environment. Brown is considered a hero and pioneer of global environmentalism. His lecture is open to the campus and general public.
He will speak on "food as the new oil". With food scarcity driven by falling water tables, eroding soils, and rising temperatures, control of arable land and water resources is moving to center stage in the global struggle for food security. With tightening world food supplies, the ability to grow food is fast becoming a new form of geopolitical leverage.
