The Jefferson Council is pleased to join other alumni free speech organizations in sponsoring a debate about climate change organized by the Cornell Free Speech Alliance in collaboration with the Steamboat Institute as part of the nationwide “University Open Inquiry Forum.”
Nationally recognized scholars Steven Koonin of New York University and Robert Socolow of Princeton University will debate the proposition: “Climate science compels us to make large and rapid reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.” Socolow will argue in the affirmative and Koonin in the negative. The debate will be moderated by Sarah Westwood, a reporter with the Washington Examiner.
The free event will be live-streamed and open to all.
Time: 5:45pm – 7:15pm ET
Date: Wednesday, March 15, 2023

Greenpeace Co-founder, Patrick Moore, published “FAKE INVISIBLE CATASTROPHES AND THREATS OF DOOM” in 2021. A Ph.D. scientist debunks climate change hoax.
I would suggest that it be noted and emphasized that Koonin was a Senior Environmental Advisor for the Obama Administration…
Climate Change is the new religion at UVA (along with DEI)
Seriously. Jefferson wanted a secular school, but he could have never anticipated religious zealots like the Climate-DIE-alists?

No money for the heretics. And the first one to quit clapping for Dear Leader Jim will be shot!
The longer this wokeness and pagan religion about the environment continues to flush out reasonable discussion, research and publication of the results of same; the more any deviation from the current fictitious narratives are punished; the more the wedge of racism is driven into every facet of the life of the University; the more the Stalin show trials and the Great Purge of the late 1930’s come to mind.
Ironically, I saw an article online, recently, attributed to the National Geographic Society asserting that Global Warming may actually be beneficial to humans, as of the world-wide climate related deaths, only 10% were attributed to heat exposure. Fully 90% of climate related deaths are attributed to over exposure to the cold. So, all the hoopla regarding rising oceans due to icecap melting may actually be beneficial, reducing areas of extreme cold and making more land area suitable for human habitation. Go figure.
