Every spring and fall, Penn Arts & Sciences' faculty squeeze a wealth of knowledge and discovery into just one minute. This September, professors and students from across the university will unite in a series of 1.5* Minute Climate Lectures to raise awareness of the consequences of the climate crisis and to advocate for large-scale changes in our community.
*The maximum amount the average temperature can rise in order to avoid the worst consequences of global warming is 1.5°C. We’re already past 1°C.
