Dr. Patrick Moore, a leader in the international environmental field for more than 30 years, will be featured Tuesday, Feb. 28, in the University Lecture Series at California State University, Fresno.
He will speak on “Environmentalism for the 21st century” at 7:30 p.m. in the Satellite Student Union, 2485 E. San Ramon Ave.
In 1991, Moore founded Greenspirit, a consultancy focusing on environmental policy and communications in natural resources, biodiversity, energy and climate change. He is the author of “Green Spirit-Trees Are the Answer,” a photo-book that provides a new insight into how forests work and how they can play a powerful role in solving many of our current environmental problems.
Moore was a founding member of Greenpeace and served for nine years as director of Greenpeace International. He believes that one of our most serious environmental problems can be attributed to the ineffective communication between special interest groups and the business community, and he seeks to reveal the myths and misinformation that distort current environmental debates. He calls for issues to be discussed on the basis of accurate scientific data, a search for consensus and the creation of sustainable solutions.
The University Lecture Series is sponsored by the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs with additional support provided by Coke and James Hallowell, the University Student Union, the Associated Students, Piccadilly Inn Hotels and KJWL-FM.
Advance tickets are available at the University Student Union Information Desk. Tickets are $10 general admission; $6 Fresno State faculty, staff, Alumni Association members and seniors; $5 elementary and secondary students; and $2 Fresno State students.
